What Is It? game 202

Once again, it's time for our collaboration with the always fascinating What Is It? Blog. Do you know what the pictured item is? Or can you make an amusing wild guess?

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will win T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

See another picture of this item at the What Is It? Blog.

Update: the mystery object is an inkwell. Congratulations to Anker, who had the correct answer right off. The funny answer award goes to Straight_Flush, who declared this to be a small hadron collider! Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop. We had a lot of imaginative answers this week, some x-rated, so you should go read them all!

It's actually an inkwell. My husband and I are antique dealers and have a double inkwell with the same sort of well, snail shaped. The spout is towards the top, against a stopper on the upper part of the frame.

You can tip the well away from the stopper to dip your pen or refill the well with ink.

It's the first portable glass harmonica invented by Ben Franklin. You attach it to a string around your neck and adjust it to your needs, wet the rim, and blow across it to make a note.

When life gives you mold, make penicillin. Ladies fit, S. Ash gray.
