    I'd still call it a Manitou. Mainly to keep me from forgetting about it. Was my first impression ,though too out of context to be native crafted from bronze. Inspired by natives? , Maybe. The water serpent. Or whatever the spirit is that stirs up water unexpectedly.

    (Check out an Arial shot of Manitou Island too if you're bored. Check its shape. Add a couple lengths to it's blunt "forks"...)

    I mentioned before of some places /folks to consult.
    Near me today I'd hit the college of art and design.

    If you are going to keep researching (suggesting here, not telling you) treat it like it is an object I hold that you are vaguely interested in. With no pretense.

    Keep at it.

    Kudos on the good pics. Not sure what it is, but if you want I can send them to some archealogists to get their opinion. Just let me know.

    E-mail and pics sent to 3 archaeologists in Ohio. One is a curator at the Ohio History Connection, the second works for a natural history organization, and the third a college professor who has conducted a lot of field excavations. Will post their replies as I get them.

    Update: Curator at the Ohio History Connection doesn't know and is waiting to hear back from a few colleagues. The college professor is unsure of the purpose. Keep fingers crossed.

    It seems a little too small to be a bottle opener and it probably pre-dates crown caps. I have seen objects like this made for smoking short cigars. The handle wouldn't go into the palm but between the thumb and forefinger or knuckle.
