“Found in a garden. A metallic object that closes in on itself.”

"It’s a Hindu ritual box. It is missing the middle piece that would sit in that central hole. This is used to store turmeric and other colorful powders which we shower over the deity’s idol."

 

“It used to be used in World War I, but we’ve got no clue what it was meant for.”

"It’s a curette, a medical instrument used for scraping away tissue (for example removing certain skin lesions, removing dead tissue from a wound)."

 

“What is this ceramic tube? Found in a drawer of random antique bits (like an antique junk drawer) I think they were white, and discolored with age.”

"These are the tubes for knob-and-tube wiring."

 

“Husband has this in his collection but no idea what its intended purpose is, other than being an axe.”

"That’s an aircraft crash-axe. Typically mounted to a bulkhead in cargo aircraft."

"What is this V-shaped scoring found on the tree?

"That’s an old way to collect sap to make turpentine. It’s called “cat face.”"

 

"Turns out, the hole in the center of this ceramic crab is a water inlet. This device was used in calligraphy in the 17th century."

“Water was poured into it and then the water was dripped from the nose on a dry dye to get ink.”

 

"It might seem like a Tyrannosaurus tooth. But in fact, it is just petrified coral."

“Moving into a new apartment and found this on the wall. It seems like a plastic plate that’s just hollow inside the opening. What could this be for?”

"It’s a port for hiding cables in wall."

“This find is 100 years old. What could it be?”

"It’s a traditional Chinese soy sauce jug. The little spout is a giveaway."

 

“Found in an old house built in 1914, the little gold pins spin if you pull the red cord through.”

"It’s a razor blade sharpener."

 

“What is this small rubber thing I found in my throat when I coughed up a loogie after I woke up this morning? Earring for scale.”

"A gum massager that broke off of an electric toothbrush."

 

“I found this while walking in a creek. I and my friend thought it was a cannon but after cleaning it, not sure what it is. It is made of iron and about 25 lbs.”

"Could be an old hydraulic cylinder from an excavator/farm equipment."

"This thing that looks like a head massager is actually a cocktail stick. Ladies used to use small whisks to degas carbonated drinks."
"Solid metal Egyptian-looking scarab. It has hieroglyphs on the underside and is fairly heavy for its size."

"I have one of these from Egypt. Definitely a paperweight tourist trinket."

 

“Found this buried. It’s flat on one side, concave on the other, and has a hole right through the middle.”

"It’s a millstone from a small mill."

 

“Found while cleaning out an old cedar closet. Had a bendy spring in the middle.”

"I think it’s a vintage hat display stand. The pull cord lets you pull the hat down and to the sides to exam it rather than touching the hat itself."

“Does anyone know what these measurements are in my parking lot?”

"This is elevation off of the laser level. At that point, it is 20 inches higher than the lowest point that was shot or 20 inches lower if marked by -/+."

 

"6″ tall, 4″ wide, feels metal-ish"

"It’s an iron nodule — a natural concentration of iron."
