Thing?? now known as a Mohr Pinchcock Clamp.
Another object off the stall at Moss Farm which came with a story, another story I am really not sure about. The man said it was a medical item and was used as a tourniquet for a bleeding finger...is it though? Not knowing what else it might be I will have to go with that until advised otherwise.
Patent Number 645514
Michael just told me that someone on Flickr said it is called a MOHR PINCHCOCK CLAMP, and is used on tubes to regulate the flow of liquids or gas..so it is medical.....but not as gory..
Camera Lens Brush
This twists and the brush is revealed, like a lipstick.
What is it really? Judges Wig Powder Pot.
I always like a good story with an object, and I bought a few things off the same stall at Moss Farm, just because the man said this wasn't a pepper pot..."yes indeed that is what it looks like, but it is actually a pot to hold powder to dust the wig of a judge" he said...he swore that is what it is...not sure myself.

An Awl for All
Friday, July 22, 2016
The lady who sold me this in the Nantwich Antique fair wasn't sure what it was, we both agree it was to hold a razor blade and could well be a cheroot cutter. (a cheroot is a cigar with both ends open). But neither of know why it has measurements on it?
