Does this ring any bells?

(PhD Studentship available at AUB http://www.modip.ac.uk/resources/PhD-Studentship)

MoDiP has the kind of collection that you may think you are very familiar with. We have objects which we all use every day, and some pieces which are more unusual. 

By looking at this distorted image are you able to guess what the object is? What do you think it could be used for?







Post your answer in the comments below or find out more about the object by looking at the MoDiP catalogue.
