The top of a Minaret I saw on a recent visit I had to Turkey ?
The top of an ornamental lamp I saw on a visit I had to my back garden ?
There are no cigars for anyone guessing which one.
But for the undecided amongst you,I will give a little clue.
I have not even been to Torquay let alone Turkey !!

The top of a once ornamental lamp is as good a description for me even if it is not right. Certainly an image of contrasts.

The product of a nocturnal incident between a German military helmet of the early 1900s and an industrial salt cellar, used until 2003 for manual grit dispensing on the roads of the Borough of Leith. Shown inverted.
What else?
So glad you're not offering cigars as a prize because I gave them up in 1977.
