Nicely done, Mick, of course it is Turkey. Wink
All this wet stuff should make more subjects for your speciality.

An ornamental Gatepost with a built in ashtray?
17 Feb 2014 7:49AM
Weird....
Just looks badly made to me
Why those big gaps???
But if you rub it perhaps a genie will appear?

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.

An oil lamp with the facets to bounce the light around a room or garden.

My first thought was the Scottish buggeredifiknow.

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.
Lovely pic, Mick, a real teaserBlush

My guess is the top of an old, and somewhat questionably stylish, lamp.

Ha ha, at first i thought it was the top of one of those old spinning tops that made a sound as it went around. Now that's going back a bit, but then I guess so can we Mick Smile

A great teasing image either way.
