Pioneer Puzzle #15. 8-11-15

Pioneer Puzzle #15:
What is the item in front?

Hurricane Lamp
The early saints put their candle in a hurricane lamp so the breeze wouldn't blow it out when they walked at night. Each hole in the design had to be made by hand, and the rough side faced out to keep the wind from blowing the candle out. Each family had their own design, so you could tell who was coming to your house by the design on their hurricane lamp.
