Scope and content

The handle of this object is a small cylindrical piece of wood that is rounded at the top with a hole in it. Inserted into the hole is a metal loop presumably for hanging the broom the broom up after use. This loop has a metal stick which goes straight through the object and comes out the opposite side of the handle onto which are attached the pieces of straw that make up the broom head. The head of the broom is rounded at the bottom and the straw is squeezed tightly together by a metal piece that sits about a quarter of the way up on the body of the broom head. After this metal piece the straw is a little more loose and free allowing some movement of the bristles. The straw head is a yellow color and squared off at the top.
