Unusual Find of the Week: Rocket Ship

This is the first of a weekly post about unique, one of a kind, unknown items I find in my thrift store shopping. I'm always looking for the unusual. I'll buy something just because I don't know what it is or what it was used for! This week's treasure is a metal rocket ship. I think it is hand made, but not sure what type of metal was used. It's quite heavy and measures about 10" high. Is it a model, a toy, a candle cover (why not?) or an actually working rocket. I have no idea. But here it is for you to enjoy!
