Now this sure is different - love the hues of copper. I see Ms. Edelstein has left her mark here too...wv: sizar. This looks like a pair of sizars to me but I am probably wrong.
huh. We call those kelly clams, or hemostats. Use them every day...nice shot
I'm guessing some type of surgical forceps.
Lol!! I know , pick me! Pick Me!!I share well with others!!
A personalized, engraved roach clip? For the woman who has everything, right?
Interesting shot....looks like old medical equipment, yet the cast iron(?) under it makes me wonder if it has to do with cooking. Removing hot items from a pan or stove. You got me. Either way, an unique and thought provoking shot.xxxx
makes me think of some 19th century doctor about to do a procedure...without sterilizing those forceps..eeek! very nice, as always.
Looks almost antique as though it's been around since the um 60's ;) I'm guessing you didn't find this in the attic.
gorgeous shot. So much texture and the color balance is awesome.
uhmm... a little flashback here.love it !!
I love the detail that can be seen...how interesting it is to see what many of us ignore each day.
Yeah, Mojo's got it right.
LOL @ Mojo...duuuuuude
GReat presentation and texture.
Laughing at Mojo..are we supposed to guess what these two have in common? I think it is an exquisite photo, no matter what you use the clips, um, hemostats for...
Candle snuffer? Whatever it/they is/are, it's a beautiful image.
Oh a porringer! My girls both ate their rice cereal from one when they were babies. We southerners love these very special silver bowls.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PorringerV
I'd say hemostats...
Very nice composition. Hemostats/roach clip.....
I love the copper colored shadow!
Great photo - I love the copper and design, but I guess I don't really know what it is. That's fine for me - though now I'm curious what a "hemostat" is after reading one of the previous comments.
What Mojo said.. heh. Awesome shot though. Love the way the light falls.
OK, so who took my roach clip?
a roach clip!! LOLthat's pricelesslove, love, love the earthy metallic tones
Cool or should I say grooovy man? Happy WW!
Love the close shot of a scissors and ???
Everybody else has fairly much covered the ground I would have tread upon, so I'll not speculate. Love the brand name of the implement, though.
I used to call that a "roach clip". It's beautiful :)
SO well done! Tactile. LOVE the "etched" signature on the, um, clip :)You are MY sort of gal! (I even have a state license!)Aloha from Waikiki :) Comfort Spiral
Beautiful. I like the way the two objects look together.
Good grief. Just when I think you're finally getting serious, you turn into a cut-up! Creative one, but a cut-up, nontheless! ;-)Re your question on Ocala: I've not eaten there...Lois has...it's a little fancy-pantsy and their prices reflect that kind of food. Lois said it was OK.
The "word" this wordless Wednesday is you have a pair of 'dedelstein' fashion scissors...
I'm with Faye! Nice shot!<><
