One hundred: object, originally uploaded by meganknight.
This is a little pewter object that we found in a flea market in Glasgow. We don’t know what it is, although the shape seems somewhat religious to me (although the shell is not, I suppose). It’s beautifully made, and doesn’t seem to have been used, but then, pewter never really looks used.
It’s a lovely, odd, unintelligible thing.
One thought on “One hundred: object”
I wonder whether it’s a container for consecrated oil. Or maybe it’s a salt bowl, for a secular dinner table.
