The Mystery Deepens Around an Enigmatic Golf Item


NightLight, lamp, music box, egg-warmer, thimble, electric jello mold, snuff box, heater, radio, buzzer, envelope sealer.

All good guesses but not one of them is correct. Or even that close. So I've posted another view of the enigmatic item. I'll also give you a couple of hints:

* To clarify scale, the perforated circular inset shown above on the bottom of the piece is about the size of a nickel.

* It was used for an activity that's less common today than it was in the 20's, but one that still takes place.

* There are many modern versions of the item, that bear almost no resemblance to this antique version.

So, that's about all I can say. If you have any final guesses post them here, or on my facebook/twitter pages... or send them via email. I'll reveal the answer tonight.
