Happy Friday friends, and welcome to another edition of What the Heck Is It?
Every week I’m absolutely amazed by the knowledge of you guys.
I had no idea what this wooden thingy was. I guess these boot jacks are a big thing in some places, but I’ve never seen one around here.
Thanks so much for helping out AnnMarie with your comments.
This week I have two mystery items for you that I’m hoping you can help me with.
Well, I guess we’ll see if they’re a mystery. lol.
This first item is made of strong wire about the thickness of a metal coat hanger,
It’s about 10″ tall and no matter what it actually is I think it would make a great repurposed Christmas tree, or maybe even an angel.
What do you think?
The second item is a real prize. Literally.
And apparently it’s ‘The’ Prize.
If this mystery item is really from the year 1893 that would be wonderful.
It does have a very lovely patina.
It has good weight to it, and I think it’s made of steel… but I’m no expert so I’m not really sure.
It’s about 15 3/4″ long…
and has a hole at each end, so I’m assuming that it was attached to something at some point.
What the heck are they? Any ideas?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
