Went to the grocery store in Morrisville and noticed signs for free stuff/moving sale popping up all around a house. Looks like another farmer packing up and retiring to Florida. The sale had been going on for five days and now it was all free stuff. I saw these things and instantly thought table sculpture stands some day. The guy mumbled something about 'rings' and went and got me a horse shoe too. All of those silver rings on the right were on the pieces and came off easily. No clue what these things are but they are beautiful and another unique find for my collection of baubles. They are washed and drying, soon to be stuffed in the basement.
*someone in the know emailed me and said that those things go on the bottom of a plow rig, the rings adjust the height otherwise the plow would dig in too much. thanks for the info!
