    Almost looks like an old check valve fixture on an old boiler , radiator heating system...? Is there a piece of rope down in the wax or old grease..?

    given the small holes, maybe it uses those smaller citronella candles. used as a bug deterent?

    the small holes and the overall size, i don't see it being used as a latern.
