Think Outside the Box for the Newest Mystery Artifact

Good Afternoon and Happy Monday! 

This week we have a new mystery artifact, that looks like this:

It's essentially a box. The sides of the box are made of wire mesh, attached to thin pieces of wood by nails.

The bottom of the box has a large hole, from which a wire mesh cone protrudes up into the center. At the top of the cone, there is a small opening.

The whole box is about one foot tall, 8 inches wide, and 7 1/2 inches deep. The cone inside extends about 8 inches up from the bottom of the mesh. 

And finally, in the middle of the (solid wood) top to the box, theres a small lid, held onto the box with a few small pieces of wood. Those spin to allow this lid to be removed. 

This one might be obvious to some (we've already had a few correct guesses at the museum), so let us know what you think it is! You can comment here, on our Facebook page, tweet the answer at us, or comment on Instagram! Of course, you can always come see us and take a look in person!
