    HELP - What is this? Please Help ID this Antique!

    I know there are many odd and smart TW owners here - what better place to come for help to ID and old antique!

    Story:

    My brother got this in an auction - it was lumped in with a bunch of other stuff he won.

    No one (even antique dealers) know what this thing is.

    The only markings are pictured - patented 1901.

    In the pics you will see my keys - this is so you get an idea on its size. It would fit in a shoe box.

    It rotates / tilts about 60 degrees. It has a wood base - I don't think it is meant to be hung on a wall.

    I have no idea what this thing is.

    So - what is this thing??????? Something to make candles....a tool to sort pills....????

    No one knows - do you?

    I failed at trying to figure out what it is. It certainly is interesting.

    I pulled up patents for 1901 and flipped through, I didn't see anything similar. I did see that the ball peen hammer was patented in June of 1901.
