Looks like some type of knob for a small appliance, perhaps for a yellow KitchenAid mixer?

water hose hook?

Good guess! :slight_smile:
But no. :x:

Well I DO use it as a top now @louisdi . And yes @johnny5, it does flip and spin on its stem!
But it’s not a top. :x: :x:

Nice guess Major! :relaxed:
But :x:

@ceedee, your wife was so close I’m gonna say… BINGO :heavy_check_mark: :tada:
(It’s actually a humeral head for a shoulder.)

You made my wife’s day! :grinning:

She just told me that she’s never seen a shoulder appliance, so the “hip” guess. Also, some medical trivia…in a shoulder replacement, the ball and socket are reversed for better strength and integrity.

It’s a tomato server. Early 20th century.

From my research, there’s a few different names, but it’s part of the Woolly Bear Caterpillar group.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a photo and who guessed!

Since you can win only once in this contest, we’ll have our drawing for three winners from those who submitted photos first, later this afternoon. There were (by my count) 8 eligible entries.

Once we’ve selected those winners, I’ll remove those people from eligibility for winning a prize for making guesses, and we’ll have the second set of drawings.

I’ll be back after a quick meeting and will need 1-3 volunteers to help with the first drawing.

Okay, here we go!

We’re going to draw winners for three prizes from those who submitted a photo.

I am assisted in this drawing by my friend @rolandh, who will be selecting three numbers between 1 and 8, inclusive. (That makes for some pretty good odds.)

@rolandh please select our first winning number.

Let’s start with the rather obvious number 1.
