what is it?

I haven’t done a post for awhile. This one has nothing to do with needle punch. It is more along the meandering trail. We just returned from a trip to Mohawk, in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula, where we spent time at our family home. Below is a picture I snapped while we were there. I’ll be curious to see who recognizes what it is.

Does this look familiar to you?

  1. Scott, my husband thought it may be a door buzzer of some type. I am guessing the button is used to turn on a lamp (we have an old floor lamp with the same type of button at the base).


    1. You are right Allyson. It’s a switch on the wall that turns on the ceiling light in our kitchen. The button that you twist is about three quarters of an inch thick and the base is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches thick. It makes a very loud click when you twist it. Not quite primitive, but it sure isn’t a ‘clap on, clap off’ action.
