I bought this a little while ago in a junk shop, thinking that it was a bottle holder of some kind. I figured I could display a nice-looking bottle of rum or something behind my Tiki bar. Unfortunately, the average bottle doesn't come close to fitting. No doubt sometime I'll find an oddly shaped bottle that does, but I was wondering if anyone knew what it was really designed for.


Cheers,
Trader Woody

I'm guessing candle or flower holder, originally with a glass (or plastic?) insert.

I'm guessing it's a tea/hand towel holder for the kitchen or bathroom

maybe you could fit a wine bottle in it upside-down?
Excuse me for asking...
What the heck is an entrice? Is that like a soul?

Well, actually I made that word up. But I figured it looked like it would hold something called that. So...

It's the early Polynesian version of the Swedish Made Penis Enlarger Pump, Baby.
