MIDWEEK MYSTERY QUESTION
This week’s challenge is an object made of solid brass, 22.5cm wide and 6cm high weighing 3.6 kg. What’s its use?
Could it be a lethal instrument of war, or simply a benign piece used to decorate space above a fireplace? Maybe a little heavy for jewellery but it could look impressive dangling from the neck of some civic dignitary.
Do you have the answer? Your best creative guess is welcome.
Answer posted tomorrow.
