What will it effect, when all is done?
Hi, Jeff of pa, I think I just saw something like this on another post. Is it an old lighter from the 1920s-1930s?

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro...I am a wealth of mostly trivial information.....
First thought is a ferrule from a cane or walking stick.....not sure about the hole in it though.

Ok here goes my guess. It looks like an old sewing bobbie to wind the thread around.

is it wood, metal, rubber?
Looks like a handlebar grip on a bike.

the small hole looks like a break. I'm thinking there was possibly a bubble shape there ?
Length is slightly tapered also.
end with the small hole is wider then the end with the large hole,
sort of like a Canon shape.
possible made of copper

It looks like the piece on a Colemen lantern that you tighten down on the top. Is it threaded on the inside?

It's about the right size... maybe an antique calve stem cover?

I looked but there are so many different models it would take too long to find an exact match if that is even what it is off of.

Thanks ! it appears to be a bit primitive like it was hand made, but I guess this could be due to damage.

The cross hatching on it is what made me think it might be threaded, so you can grip it and turn it with your fingers. They also used things like these on table lamps to tighten down the lamp shade. Your's could be off of something totally different though

Yea, If I can figure out how I'm going to mark it solved & Consider it a Cap/finial of some type .
Thanks all who responded !
