Yesterday’s Mystery Object was a Grain Sieve.
It has a woven fabric bottom. A grain sieve is used for separating smaller grains from larger ones. Smaller grain particles can fall through the tiny openings in the woven fabric and into a bowl, while the larger ones stay stuck in the sieve. The larger grains will either be set aside to be used for another purpose or they will be ground up into smaller pieces and shaken through the sieve again.
