What is it?

Once in a while we thought we would try and stump our readers with a curious object from the 19th Century. I'm not sure this is a hard one or an easy one but I do know that I didn't know what it was when I first saw it!
Anyone care to take a guess?

Come back tomorrow to find out!

One hint-This item can be found in one of the museum's new exhibits this year!

Museum Employees-No fair telling if you already know!


  1. I guess that it is a ring that cobblestones were passed through to sort them according to size.

  2. Something a blacksmith would use? Perhaps, someone could tie their horse to the ring and then push this item into the ground?

  3. could it be used in measuring distance?
