Can you identify this object?

The Archives Team have been attempting to identify a cast iron object associated with Hestercombe House.

The latest theory is that the cast iron object had a domestic use, perhaps a place to rest a hot clothes iron as there are raised projections on the inside bottom that would have prevented the iron from coming into direct contact with the bottom of the object.


If you have any ideas what this might be, please do contact as the archive team would love to hear your thoughts.
