Hi ev re the squiggles I think it's just reflection from the wrought iron table it's sitting on,it didn't come with a spigot,actually it belongs to my sister-she bought it from the seconds shop.

what is this???

I like the weird things and things that are slightly unusual and this really caught my eye on trade me. It was sold as a decanter but I think the water might fallout. Is there something missing from this, and what is it really called??? It has the infamous Made in NZ markings and the numer 1286.

Regardless of what it actually is, I just love the bizarreness of it.

Hiya Kate
According to some notes I have from the Auckland Museum the 1286 is called a "Wine Cask"
Incidentily 1285 was a wine cask with a cork top - looks as though there were wine goblets too 1284

First date was 1978

Hope that helps Smile

Jo

Cool, thanks for that. I think I still need to use my imagination on how it would work, but I must b missing a cork or two.
