Picture of a house?

This is a brass 25 mm token. Looks like a house ? Who knows this?

I did an image search but came up with nothing. It could be a company logo but if it were what would be it's purpose? Since the reverse is blank, it may be something that was made to be engraved. At only 25mm that doesn't seem likely though.

You'll need good luck to find this one. Brass 25 mm make it eminently suitable as a parking token. Even if it isn't, it may open a parking place somewhere. The design may be a logo, but it may also be an arrow, a clue for the poor souls standing in front of a parking barrier, wondering why it won't open and what the slot is for. ::) There are actual parking tokens with a closed barrier design for such people.

I can now picture a frustrated driver, giving up and driving away, the token now resting on the floor of the car, the driver muttering he'd paid, determined to vote for the same political party again 'cause they'd have done somethin' 'bout it if the opposition hadn't been such naysayers! :)
