    I have seen this item. It is zinc and measures 3" x 3" with a 1/2" stem. Any ideas welcome. It doesn't look like a fantasy piece, but I have not been able to find anything similar on-line.

    That is neater than a skeeter's pet--. I would GUESS that it was mounted on the rear of a car, etc. to let the people behind know that there was a hero in front of them! Is it Silver? I would like to hear what it REALLY is for.

    Hi Al, sorry this is a fantasy item.

    We have an old saying here in England which goes "I would not touch it with a barge pole". A barge pole being a very long wooden stick.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade,

    I hadn't seen one before, and had my doubts! I spent the first 40 odd years of my life in Surrey. We had a few canals, and I got well aquainted with a bargepole on a few occasions.
    Cheers,
    Al

    Neat little display item, but for sure fantasy!
