To Lift Your Spirits!

Hello, all!  Here is a new mystery artifact for you to ponder as fall gets into full swing.

The item is cast iron, and it is a little more than a foot long.

As you can see, there is a rectangular opening on the end to the left in the photos.  The other end is somewhat rounded and curves upwards, as can be seen in the second photo. 

What is this object?  What was it used for?  This week's mystery artifact is on display in the museum, so come on out and take a closer look, then post your guesses in the comments section of the blog or on our Facebook page!

  1. Is it used for lifting the covers on a wood stove top?
