This one stumped us!?

This is beautiful but we are not sure what it is for.  Maybe just decoration but it’s a interesting piece.  If anyone has a guess or knows for sure please comment or email us.

So far we have had customers say it may be…

  • A urn (We think they were joking)
  • A lamp (but missing the lamp part)
  • A place to HIDE stuff (as it opens if you unscrew the top then turn the sides it opens up and has a fairly large cavity inside)
  • A nice mantle piece
  • Epergne (Wedding) center piece to hold dessert or fruit (Missing a bowl from top – very likely the correct answer as the little brass button at the top does screw down)

Do you know?
Have a guess?

I will add a closer view below..
