Happy Thursday friends, and welcome to another edition of What the Heck Is It?
There were a lot of ideas about what last week’s Christmas mystery item might be… a soldier, a marionette, a dentist, a baseball player, Santa at the North Pole, a curler, a Shriner, and a chimney sweep.
I find it so interesting that we can all see different things in the same ornament. Thanks so much for all the wonderful suggestions. 🙂
I’m just going to call him a renaissance man ornament and say that he’s all those things. Why not?
He’s definitely a keeper!
I found this week’s mystery item in my regular thrift store’s 25 cent gadget bin.
I find a lot of interesting things in there, and for that price what the heck!
It’s about 6″ long and has a wooden handle.
I have no idea what this might be used for, but the first thing I thought of was those hooks they used to pull bad acts off the stage in the old vaudeville days.
It could be a miniature version… maybe for bad puppet show acts. 🙂
Ummm… probably not.
Here’s the inside of the hooky thingy.
I assume the notches on the inside were put there so it would be easier to bend the metal into shape. Or maybe they’re purely decorative.
It’s marked Weil, Stainless/Inox, Japan.
So, if it’s not a bad puppet act hook… then what the heck is it?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
