Is it a really small pot lid or a fancy top for the ketchup? I found it a few years ago in a TOC dump and never found out what it was for. Thanks again....DD

Really nice find! It looks like a fancy "top" to a cork (cork would have been glued into the socket) used in/on back-bar bottles.

I agree with Plumb....cork stopper was likely glued to it.

hotels in NYC sometimes had their own bottles as well.

^^^ from the hotel roosevelt in manhattan.

Ive found drinking sticks, tokens, ID tags, key tags, etc, etc... There has to be at least 1 thing from every hotel back in the day.
