This one comes from loyal reader Jo, a devoted member of the Greater Dover Historical Society.
What is this item?
It was found in a barn in the Dover area and donated to the society. It’s fairly small, but very heavy for its size.
Any ideas? Leave us a comment. I’m at a loss; someone earlier had suggested a harness of some sort and while I could see that (with the chain at the one end), it seems odd that you’d use something so heavy.
