wotsatden ?

Postby Tusses » 03 Jan 2017, 20:22

wifey takes her mum out every week to the boot and hall sales.
sometimes she brings back something useful !
we have an old house, circa 1800 .. so we have all sorts of odds and ends about cluttering up the place ! lol

this "thing" has us stumped ??

anyone know what it is ??

it's approx 13" long

sort of like a spoon, but the inside is not polished.

one end bigger then the other ...

not a shoe horn either, as there is a lip on the end ...

any ideas ?

The general shape is a bit similar to the tools model locomotive builders make to load coal into their boilers but I can't think why one would be double ended.
Two separate ones of different sizes maybe but .....

Google image search says it is a "tool" - not too helpful but not bad for a computer eh?

lol ! .. I was thinking about a google image comparison ... I don't use it that much ..

I googled the coal shovel thing, and yes, the end does look similar :-) ta ..
something to keep in mind

part of the joy of new pressies is finding out what they are ! .. usually I like to solve it myself ... but need help with this one !

I always tell her , I'm like bagpuss ! :lol: ..

she brings me things to find out what they are and fix them up :D

AND ! we have a pump organ in the living room, as a tv stand ! :lol: :lol:

Is it a "spoon" for smoothing old leather boots? I have never used one but have been told about them. You heat it up and then use it to iron the leather before applying spit and polish.

My tool kit is almost complete, only a few more to get.
