So I am attaching 3 more photos of the artifact. The first is the artifact open so that you can see the inside of the “ball”. The second is a close up of the artifact so that you can see how it doesn’t clamp completely closed. The last photo is a side by side pic of my hand with a male colleagues hand so that you can see how delicate the handles actually are (especially in a man’s hand). Also, I can now make-out “C.S. Osborne & Co.” one the side. Thanks again for all your input!
