Hugh Harvey of Mayne Island, B.C., writes “I found this item in the bottom of a $5 box of stuff at a yard sale here on Mayne Island. It’s made of wood-possibly maple-and measures 5 inches in height and the base is 13⁄4 inches in diameter. The ‘pick’ is 3 inches long. Nobody around here has any idea what it is!” Can anyone help Hugh out?
