Any Ideas What this Little Wooden Cauldron is For?
It is just over four inches high, made of a dark wood and has a lid and three legs.
Being wood, I don't think it would be much good as a tea-light holder.
I wondered if it might be a mortar, but it didn't come with a pestle and if you pressed too hard then the legs would be likely to break, I suspect.
I think that a condiment or mustard pot would come with a glass or ceramic liner rather than just be made of wood. Also, the lid would have a little hole for a spoon to go in, and it doesn't.
My best guess is that it is could be just an ornamental pot for putting trinkets in, but I wondered if anyone else had any ideas.
If you think you know what it is meant for - or what it could be used for, do leave a comment.
