What the heck is it


Recommended Posts

Let me also be one of the first to go out on a limb and make a fool of myself....

 

I doubt it is anything "automotive" related, regarding being on cars.  I'd say it's more advertising related.

 

"Spitoon" in the ad...lol.   That doesn't make sense,  the script would be on the bottom and who would spit on a Buick logo anyway?    That sounds like a felony offense.

From the looks of the inside I would say it was used as an Ash Tray

Ding, ding!  We have a winner!

 

I have a three-legged early 1920s Paige hubcap similarly modified, although someone made a sincere but not entirely successful attempt to clean the cig butt residue out of the innards.  Found it on eBay years ago for cheap and bought it only as a curiosity (my shop is *filled* with curiosities).

Looks like it was intended to be a coat hook or hat rack 

Lol,  I edited that idea out of my previous post. 

Now I don't  feel so bad, that makes two of us who thought that.

What's that they say; great minds think alike. 😁
