Does anyone know what this is???

Out garage selling this weekend
I found this....



The very nice lady I bought it from told me that it had come
out of Palm Beach and it was a
tree ring.

To be placed around the base of a tree and used for decoration.

I could see that on one hand but on the other??? 
 I'm not sure...



It does come apart, so I could see how it would fit around a tree.
But, it holds candles on the top of the flowers....
that would be a fire hazard around a tree I would think!


It has a drill/screw like thing coming out of 
two of the flowers (one on each side).
So is that meant to bore into the tree?



But, see all the beautiful flowers, if you place that around the tree they won't be seen...
so shouldn't they be on the opposite side of the piece?
That's why I'm so confused as to what this might actually be.



I've tried to research it and i'm getting nowhere.

If anyone has a guess or knows what this is....
please tell me!

It's making me crazy not to know exactly what this is.

Huh, I have never seen one of these either. I wonder if it is valuable? It is cool though!
If you find out more about it, let us know!
Have a pretty day!

I don't know what it is, but it's very cool! I will be curious to know what you end up using it for. I'm sure you will find a cool way to use it.
