Care to venture a guess?

Recommended Posts

While traveling the wilds of the Berkshires this past weekend I stumbled upon a odd trinket in an antique store. At first I thought this to be a Texas brass knuckle, but quickly discounted that thought seeing it's made from Aluminum. It does have a charm of it's own and will retire to the cooking shed for posterity very soon along with this little piggy. Give it a guess, no cheating now, no google searches, a clear and inventive mind is all that's allowed.

I believe this to be more vintage than antique and I would say that when your parents brought you to the Supermarket/Grocery you may have seen this yourself depending on your age of course. It's made in Italy, although that has no bearing on it's end use.

Is it an 'ornament' they stuck in the beef in the meat case?

Yes, very good Tucker, it sat pronged into the meat to draw your attention. If a price tag was attached to the horn it was an addition.  Well, for all you that came in 2nd with your marvelous guesses I can only say your bosses at work should be proud to have you on board. I know, it was a tough guess...next time you'll do better, until next time.
