Our reader wrote: "I am an avid fan of the “What’s it Wednesday” feature of the newsletter. I’m hoping someone can identify this item. Attached is a photo. It has moveable parts and I’m not sure if it’s ivory, Bakelite or wood. Maybe it’s some kind of fingernail tool? It was found in a jewelry box in my mother-in-law’s cedar chest."
We’re stumped, too. If any readers know what this is, please let us know!
The size is unknown.
