What Is It?

  Victorian String Holder

A ball of string fits between the two halves of this Victorian string holder and is removed by twisting them until they come apart. The string is fed through one of two holes, depending on its thickness. A tab on the top allows the holder to be hung in a convenient spot.

This is the model for our own version of string holder (01K26.90). While our model is cast from steel, the original is made from more brittle cast iron (the fact that the bottom half broke in two shows just how brittle).
