Can You Guess the Artifact?

We keep on scavenging for the new exhibit about historic Lower East Side businesses, and we need your help to figure out how to use all this stuff! 

Our mystery artifact this week looks like a bell from afar but a closer look reveals an "X" shaped, rounded base, nailed to a heavy, metal handle.

What is this thing? Cookie cutter? Dangerous weapon?

Take a guess and find out Monday!

  1. Hmm. I will guess a dough cutter for making things like piecrust or biscuits. The blades are curved at the bottom, as if it's meant to be used in a bowl.
