    Weird "anchor"
    From: Lu Abel
    Date: 2006 Sep 08, 20:03 -0700

    Okay, it's a bit off-topic, but a librarian friend of mine sent the
    photo and wondered if I could identify it.  It's clearly way too small
    to be any sort of functional anchor, and the shackles in the middle and
    bottom would seem to have little use in the real world (admittedly,
    anchors sometimes have a shackle at the fluke end of the shank to assist
    in weighing a fouled anchor), so I can't imagine that it's even a scale
    model.  My best guess is that it might be part of a lamp or other
    decorative item, where now missing parts attached at the shackles -- but
    I'll bet this smart, world-wide crowd might have other ideas.
