A New Year & A New Mystery!

Helloooo there!

You may have noticed we took a break from our Mystery Artifact posts for the past couple months. The simple reason for that is, that the museum hasn't been open during January and February. We close during these months to change out some of our exhibits and do some general housekeeping. Since we weren't open to the public, there was no way to see these mystery artifacts up close!

But there's good news. As of tomorrow (March 1st), we are open!

Now, onto the mystery:
This type of object is still widely used by some people, so it may not be much of a mystery.

This is essentially a small wooden tool, with a short handle and six parallel rows of teeth (ours is looking a little worn down, possibly from years of use).

Do you know what this is from first glance? Or do you have a guess what it is? Let us know in the comments below or on our Facebook page. And as always, come visit us, see what's new, and see the mystery artifact up close!

  1. Maybe a currycomb, or other animal brush? I thought first that it was a lint brush, but that wouldn't show so much wear, even it were old.
