Here is a unique find: a small conical metal holder that french farmers used to hang from their belts during harvest to carry their whetting stones for scythe sharpening. Now i know no one will be using it to do that, but it can be used as part of a home decor as a small vase or a holder for small goods or kitchen tools. The is tin and the top is rusted but still structurally sound. Their is a hole near the bottom, but i can't tell if it was intentional or not. The hook is still sturdy, overall the piece is in good vintage condition. Very rustic and charming.


8 1/2 inches long and 2 1/2 inches across the top (12 cm by 9 cm)
