    I have several examples of such a thread, but in smaller diameters. They are commonly used by dental and jewelry polishing lathes to mount buffs and brushes with small center holes in wood, lead or...

    White marble or black slate were sometimes used as a board to mount electrical instruments in places where appearance was important. I think Biltmore House (1889) used the white marble.

    The 357 in my Mitutoyo caliper is about 11 mm diameter, so too small for a 16 mm cavity. LR52/A640 is possible.
