I know, it’s something to see how many people will try to guess what it is. Seriously though, it looks like it may be used as a display stand of some sort. Perhaps for a favorite plate?

I second Big Tiny. A mortising jig for say… the end of a bed rail.

Here is the secret:
They are needle keepers for knitters who knit wool socks on double pointed needles.
The sock is slipped into the slot and the needles nestle in the box so the stitches do not slip
off the needles while the work is stored. Sock knitters love the inlay embellishment and the feel of the wood.

I was going to guess some kind of dispenser or cover for one. Guess that is why my wife crotchets. If a stitch gets off, it isn’t a big deal and the usually don’t slip off the hook anyway.

Very interesting. When I first saw it I thought that it was one of those percussion instruments that a child hits with the little sticks with the wooden balls on the ends. It’s pretty.

Wouldn’t have guessed that in a million years. Very practical.
