Unusual primitive heavy and thick metal candle snuffer. Hefty and utilitarian, appears to have been made for everyday use. I originally thought it was brass until I saw the detailed photos indicating perhaps a base metal that may have had a brass or copper finish that has worn. Measures 12 inches long, the bowl is 2 inches tall, 1 1/2 inches diameter. Although the finish is worn, there is no damage at all to the basic piece.
