For What It’s Worth

An elderly Newporter recently brought in a miniature funnel saying that they were allowed to play with it as a kid. They wondered if its real purpose was other than a child’s toy. In fact, it had a very adult purpose: to fill a liquor flask! Made of sterling silver, this small instrument would be the easiest way to fill one's portable and potable libation. Value around $75.
