    It’s a last year’s wasp nest.

    Seems a bit small as only about 5cm in diameter.

    It is a wasp nest made by a solitary queen wasp its made from wood pulp.

    She either abandoned it,never laid eggs or they never developed if they had hatched they would then continue to build the nest and more brood chambers and so it goes on.

    It's a lampshade from either Ikea or Habitat
