    is it flat like we see it in the photo, or does it have a handle on the back side?

  • theres no handle, how you see it is how it sits…but its not as flat as it looks in this photo

    it is used to give shape to something else, like wax? Is it a seal stamp?

  • it doesn’t give shape to anything, it isn’t a stamp of any kind

    Fortunately, I’ve never had to use one of these… it’s a cockroach trap!

  • well done! :) In the old days they would catch beetles etc in there, then the next day pour boiling water inside to kill them, then the process would start again
