Mystery Object of the Month: What Is It?

Rose Cross of Tancook Island, Nova Scotia, writes, “This item was found in an old house that belonged to my brother-in-lawe’s family. He and my sister discovered it about four years ago, when they began renovating the 150-year-old house. It’s made of lead and weighs about 1-1/2 pounds. We’ve been wondering for years what it was used for.”
