Not sea glass but what is it?

Not sea glass but what is it?

This was found on the beach where I found sea glass and some pottery too.

It has been worn quite a bit from the waves.

It is solid but with a small hole from one end to the other.

It is about 3 inches long.

I have seen something like this in photos.

Ceramic insulator
by: Ole

The picture looks like a porcelain or ceramic insulator of some type either; a electric fence insulator or a power pole tube insulator.

Perhaps the handle to an antique razor? Or maybe a bit of a chess piece?

It is Porcelain
by: Tropicsurf

It is porcelain and about 3 inches long or a little more. The hole goes through long ways but is much narrower than a lamp cord hole. I will look for a pic of handles on the net if I can find them.

What material is it made from? Porcelain? If so, a coffee/teapot handle? It could also be part of a column of something decorative. If the hole was large enough, I'd say it was part of a lamp (hole is where the wires would go thru. I know. I know. Watching too much Antique Road Show! :)
