Hi, I found this recently and put it in the ‘I have no idea junk pot’
Just posting it up to see if it’s junk or indeed something better.
It’s made of bronze and looks to be on 2 pieces joined with a peened over copper stud. It also looks like it had 4 arms but have broken off. The ‘male’ bit has 4 grooves as to mate with something else as a drive.
I thought is was probably off a barrel tap, but not sure.
What do you think?
Thanks

Not junk, it looks more decorative than mechanical. :Thinking:
It looks pretty old!

I was hoping to get to the end of the pics to find that it had been ID'd. :lol:

The top looks like it was decorated.
With those grooves, thinking some kind of stopper for a container.
Probably wrong but your back to the opening page.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

I’ve spent the morning looking for something similar on the PAS website, but not come up with anything yet.
Trying to describe it for a Google is proving hard as well.....
I hope I don’t have to post this on another forum to get the ID ;) :lol: :rollinglaughing:
