Seller: ww2babyptt (763) 100%, Location: Medford, Oregon, Ships to: Americas & many other countries, Item: 301703109552 THIS IS A VERY OLD, UNCOMMON VINTAGE ANTIQUE, FLAG POLE FINIAL. IT IS MADE OF LEAD? AND/ OR CAST IRON?. HUSBAND CHECKED THE INSIDE WITH A FLASH LIGHT AND THERE IS SOME RUSTY COLOR INSIDE, AND THINKS IT LOOKS TO BE CAST IRON. CAN THEY COAT CAST IRON WITH LEAD? MOST CERTAINLY IT WAS PAINTED SILVER AT ONE TIME, MOST IS WORN OFF AND THE 'LEAD' COLOR IS LEFT. MEASURES 6 1/2 " TALL, APPROX 3 1/2 " ACROSS THE BALL. .THE BOTTOM STEM THAT GOES IN THE POLE IS 1 1/2" LONG AND HAS A 2 " OUTSIDE DIAMETER.. INSIDE DIAMETER ON THE STEM IS 1 3/4". THE 'COLLAR' IS 3 ".! ROUGH EDGES ON THE STEM RIM. THE BALL HAS A CASTING SEAM.. SEE PHOTOS # 8,9,10. ZOOM IN. WEIGHT IS 2 LBS, 14 OZ. IT IS VERY STRONG. THERE IS WEAR, SOME LIGHT PITTING, A ONE PIT THE SIZE OF A GRAIN OF RICE, SOME LIGHT CORROSION ON THE BALL, ALL OF THIS IS FITTING ITS AGE AND USE. PHOTO # 4,5. THERE IS A ROUND HOLE ON THE STEM, THAT LOOKS TO BE A WAY TO SECURE THE BALL INTO THE POLE. PHOTOS # 1, 6, 9. AN INTERESTING ITEM. NOT MANY AROUND OF THIS AGE. TO ME IT IS A BEAUTY! I BOUGHT IT, AS IS, IN 1965, AND USED IT TO HOLD A DOOR OPEN. IT WORKED FINE. IT HAS BEEN STORED AWAY SINCE THE MID 1970'S. NO WORSE FOR WEAR THAN WHEN I PURCHASED IT. IT IS FIT TO BE USED AGAIN ON A FLAG POLE, OR PERHAPS FOR A DOOR STOP, OR A PAPER WEIGHT, OR JUST FOR CONVERSATION !. THIS IS AN UNCOMMON, AND RARE PIECE OF AMERICANA. THE PRICE IS FOR AN ANTIQUE POLE TOPPER, THEY ARE HARD TO COME BY ANYMORE. IT IS SPECIAL, AND COLLECTIBLE. ARE THERE ARE ANY FLAG POLE FINIAL COLLECTORS LEFT OUT THERE! I AM AN OLD LADY WHO DOES NOT NEED SO MANY 'THINGS'. I DESCRIBE THE VERY BEST I CAN, WARTS AND ALL. YOUR SATISFACTION IS IMPORTANT TO ME. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS, READ THE TEXT, AND ASK ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. RETURNS ARE A NUISANCE. PAY PAL IS GOOD FOR ME. PROMPT PAYMENT IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED. 1 SHIP IN 1 DAY WITH PAY PAL APPROVAL.
