I found this while going through an old cellar. Someone thought it was a chicken Feeder but we could not find the piece it sat on to dispens the feed. I thought it was just a really pretty vase. Can you help?
I don't think it's a globe. It doesn't look like the lip of thos piece would be able to hold screwsLooks like it could be a porch light fixture glass cover. The top ridge would be held on to with three screws. Loosen the screws, remove the lens and replace the light bulb?
It is unusual to see the flower on the bottom. That is why my friend thought it might be some kind of fancy chicken Feeder. We never thought about a light globe though. That makes sense too.Is there a flat spot? It sure doesn't look that way in the pics I'm looking at. And furthermore if that is a flat spot, it's strange that they embellished and molded a flower that would not be seen and would hamper the flat stance it would need to be an effective vase. ..and it could even been used as a vase by some one else in the past because they didn't know what it is ...and it still won't make me believe it's a practical vase.
I have seen and reclaimed many many of these before... ...they are usually the last things left in an abandoned or collapsed house. I probably have in some deeply buried cartons about 8- 10 of these still.
So, it's kinda nice and .... ok what-ev
