Well, that was fun reading all your thoughts and ideas on what this copper item is.
I gave you a close up of the hinged top that shows you that it opens.
Your guesses were food mold, bed warmer, decorative vent cover, a pan to roast nuts, stove top lid,
omelet pan, a flu cover, pressure cooker lid, oh, and I love this one....an over sized door knocker, and my favorite was that if the label didn't say bed warmer then it was mislabeled. Oh, and Kat, no, it is not a toilet lid! ha, ha.
The only one who had the correct answer was Marigene. I should have had a prize to give. I didn't know this was going to be so tough for y'all.
So are you ready to see what it actually is?
It does hang just like I have it and you grab hold of the thing at the bottom and........
.....you lift it open to find your KEYS!
I placed my decorative keys in it just for these pictures.
So now you know it is a key holder.
Kind of cool isn't it?
