Hi Aimee!

Well we always love a good Curatorial Guessing Game on a Monday morning!

General consensus here seems to be a mould for a finnial (curtain rod) or fence topper.

Our Facility Manager suggested that there would be few materials you could pour into a mould like that that wouldn't just set up and stick.

On balance, our answer is, we don't know, but we had fun guessing! Keep us posted!

This object was found in a backyard in Nanaimo.  It was on the surface of the ground but had been obscured by brush.  We think it might be a mould (the person who contacted the museum says it may be made of cement or stone).

Any thoughts on what this might be?

Thank you!
