This a challenge for you.. I sent this in yesterday but no

Customer Question

Hi
This a challenge for you.. I sent this in yesterday but no one seems to be able to answer it... could you turn your mind to this...its a headscratcher:
Can you tell me what this is, what you would use it for .... and does it have a value...
Its clear glass (as you can see from the photos)... completely flat on its upper side. approx 20cm across the middle.. depth of approx 10cm...inner hole dimension approx 6cm... has me completely stumped.... I've never seen anything like it.. Thought at first it might be a candle stick holder but seems to be wrong shape to trap the melting wax

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I am not able to respond after I remove myself from the request. Good luck!

it really does have everyone wondering... the thing that I am wondering is .. if no one can identify it.. does that make it rare... or just something that never took off..

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
