Rusty, Crusty, Thrifty Metallica

So, what do you think this is?
Here's another peek...crusty for sure:

Still not sure? OK - another hint:

Have you guessed yet? Here it is...

A Victorian cast iron soap dish.
Probably from a bathroom with a nice, deep
cast iron, enameled, claw foot bathtub. 

As usual, I have no clue what I'll do with it. 
But when I got it and this next piece for $3 bucks
for the pair, I said, "Deal."

I know - I'm in a teasing mood today!

Here it is in all it's iron glory:

A candlestick. At least that's what it appears to be.
I think this one is old, but I'm not sure.
The top and bottom are two different colors...see?

Do you think it was a candlestick or something else?

Here are the pieces I found - $3.75 for all:

The silver plate photo frame is nicely tarnished. I wish the blue velvet was gray...

All in all, a pretty good day.

Word for the Day:

Deuteronomy 4:20
But the LORD has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, 
out of Egypt, to be a people of his own inheritance, as you are this day.
