Rosewood reading rod, hidden fountain nib pen, navigator map reading tool, collectible unusual weird stuff, mystery item
A very strange rosewood rod, both ends unscrew, one reveals a nib of a fountain pen on a stick (rusted), the other side possibly had a similar set-up as it's got a snapped-off bit. The side with the nib with a cavity, which held a sort of ceramic 'pounder', which fell apart on transportation.
I took it to a local auction house to unravel the mystery, the expert there thought it might have been a book reading rod, or map-reading help. He had never seen the like, nor have I!
