    My wife prowls through flea markets and brought this thing home, but neither of us have any idea what it is or what it's used for. It's metal, about 3 1/4 inches tall and 3/4" in diameter. Any guesses?

    I believe that’s an ancient Mesopotamia penis stretcher.

    Perhaps it was intended as a vessel to hold long wooden matches such as one might use to light a fire in a fireplace?

    If the bottom is closed, then I would say a vase.

    The decorative nature of the outside makes it seem like a finished product as opposed to being a part of something.

    Hehehe, admittedly that's a rather obscure object...:D

    Thanks for the suggestions! I got a tip on another forum that it might be a Chillum. Seems like a good guess. Keep 'em coming, though--penis stretcher is still a possibility!

    Victorian ribbed dildos, for both him and her.
