IMO could be roof related.

    Just stopping back by this and seeing no one pegged this down... I decided to enlarge the pictures further and realized something when relooking much closer.

    And I hope the OP has not thrown this out because it was so "down played" by myself and others.

    I now have a new opinion.... actually 2...

    This is old... well made... and was probably part of a cage sconce... light... lantern... BUT... not just any... I have seen this type of work before.

    1. It might be an "arts and crafts movement" piece. (which makes this VERY cool in itself)

    2. This IS a real deal piece of history... light or not.

    I formed this new opinion after closer inspection of the materials and craftsmanship.

    OP - Please post more pictures of close ups and CLEARER / better quality.

    I don't know that it will help anything... as far as conclusively determining what this is... but what have you got to loose ?


    PS... DO NOT throw this in the scrap heap just yet.

    I believe roof as well, somehow. Church or mission.

    Omg those are sOOOOOO much better. heh

    Sheesh... like seeing a whole new item.

    Um... yeah... ummmmmmmm

    Ley's not "discount" this just yet.

    Now with these new pictures I can see the craftsmanship superbly... well done.

    Yeah I wanna say this might actually really be something "special".

    Might be worth some research on my part... and I hope others also join in on this one.

    FOR...

    This kinda really interests me now... enough so... that is now turning into curiosity...

    Which is the "fuel" I need to actually "work" at this puzzle.

    Few things posted on TreasureNet do this these days.

    A quick search is one thing... research is another. heh

    Great pictures. Thank you. One thing that sits in my mind is that this item does not appear to be waterproof so how could it function as a roof covering? It seems to be hand made for decorative purposes. I suppose the roof could be sealed underneath and this is just decoration..

    Also... too "ornate" for roof application... would have been unnecessary.

    Later today / late afternoon / this evening... I may have an hour to dig in on this.

    I like this theory from 72cheyenne... "My guess is a base to a weather vane or lightning rod."

    I also thought vain part... this would have been made GENERALLY from a thicker metal due to it having to withstand elements.

    Have you ever dealt with weathervanes ? they are generally pretty stout... and rods as well.

    BUT...

    In theory... it could have been... and this I why it met its demise. heh

    I'm with CharlieP on this one. The six holes on the sides don't really appear to be mounting holes. While there are some really intricate weather vane designs, I don't see how this would be attached to a roof or what the six holes would be used for.

    As a hanging chandelier, likely from the arts & crafts period, it's not uncommon to have six pendant type lights or arms hanging off the sides. It would have likely been suspended "pointy side down" by chain. There really don't appear to be any other attachment mechanisms so hanging makes the most sense.

    This one isn't even close, but it provides the general concept:
