Private Stash: Nut Orb

Unlike my Private Stash post earlier in the week, I know what this object is. But only because a grouchy garage sale lady told me. Austin and I were at a sale where everything was mostly chipped or junky. Then I saw this strange object.

Nut Orb

Any guesses? Hint #1: It’s not a birdhouse. Hint #2: The stick protruding out of it is a spoon.

When I asked her, the lady said it was to hold nuts. I remarked on what a unique shape it is and I wonder why they would house nuts like this. And she snarkily responded, “I don’t know, it’s not like I made it!” I wanted to retort with, “Would you take $0.25 for it?” and run off. Not everyone we meet is enjoying their garage sale experience, but now I have this crazy mid-century modern nut orb. Yes, it’s referred to as a nut orb. Who would have known!
