My Other Old Desk

This is My Other Old Desk that also has to go - again a victim of a fit of nostalgia on my part.
This one has to go because some glass-fronted boxes (that my husband just loves) had to be moved from a closet to make room for another piece of furniture that had to be moved out of my boudoir in order to make room for my newest nostalgic acquisition.

But just wait till you see my new stuff.
Soon, my loves.  Soon.


My Old Desk

My old desk has to go to make room for my new old desk.  
It seems I've had a fit of nostalgia and purchased myself a desk nearly as old as I am. 
This one has been a good one and has served me well.
But time to say goodbye.

What Is It?

In the process of collecting small, irresistible bottles - mostly perfume bottles - I came across this thingy which, for some incomprehensible reason, I simply could not do without.  (An eye-roll here would be more than appropriate.)

I have no idea what, exactly, it is.  But it appears, to me, to be some sort of apothecary jar/bottle thingy.  Notice that the "stopper" doesn't really "stop" anything.  It just loosely dangles there inside the bottle, itself stopped from falling to the bottom by the little knob located about 2 inches from the top.

Since anything inside this bottle would certainly evaporate, I am at a loss to know for what purpose it could have been used.  The dangly stopper thingy that doesn't stop anything is 7 and 1/8th inches in total length.  The bottle itself is 6 and 3/8th inches tall and 1 and 3/8th inches in diameter.   Properly put together, the whole thing is 8 and 1/2 inches tall.

It's a bottle certainly not meant to hold perfume which is too precious to allow to evaporate.  Anything containing alcohol would not last long within it.

What is this thing?  Does anyone have a clue?
