I went to a couple antique stores this past week and found this gem. After wondering extensively as to what it was used for, I finally broke down and asked the shop owner (knowing they would probably tell me something so obvious!) but no. Not one person in the store could identify what this was used for. And truly, it could just be decorative. But I figured you all would probably be able to tell me, I am absolutely no expert in antiques! So, what is it? It has substantial weight to it, and is a little bigger than a CD... I loved it and had to have it, but now I just am so curious!
