Bone handle with pattern of circles cut out from the lower half, could be either a pattern or holes to attach something else to the handle. About four inches up the handle the metal begins, a cast rose marks where the rest of the tool once was attached (a tiny hole verifies this).
Originally owned by Theodore Barbatsuly. Peter Barbatsuly lists this item as a glass cutter however when looking at other types of glass tools at the time its hard to classsify this as just that. Unfortunately, with the top piece missing, it is difficult to say indeed what this could be.
