Seller: sycamorebooks (41,215) 100%, Location: Wigan, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 121996590069 This is a really interesting and unusual item, I think it is an old item but could be a more modern item made to look old, I honestly couldn't say. It is very solid which makes me think it has some age to it, the handle looks like it should be brass but this is worn away and the underlying metal has a black and in one place a bronze look to it, the whole thing is non-metalic. It is a large swing handle measuring 9" across and 4" high, I'm not really sure what it would of been used on. It is designed to either lay flat one way or stand upright, please see photos for details. Condition: This is an antique item, see photos and description.
