This is an outstanding Antique Cast Iron and 4-Prong Brass GREEN-SPOT Heart Shaped Base Lawn and Garden Sprinkler with its Original Old Green Paint from the Early 1900's in Excellent Condition. The base is clearly marked down the middle of the heart "GREEN SPOT" The underside has the identification number "25657-E-101" The upper portion including the sprinkler heads, piping, and spin mechanism in addition to the hose attachment are solid brass and in excellent condition with no dents and importantly, no wrench marks. The brass piping is nicely curved for optimum spray coverage and the top spins freely with no wobble. Each spray head is different providing an optimum spray pattern. The heart shaped base and lower portion of the neck are cast iron and while the neck still has most of its original old green paint, the base does not. This sprinkler was well taken care of and the brass has that wonderful rich patina that aged brass gets. The contrast between the aged brass and old green paint is spectacular. The sprinkler measures 10-1/2" across the opposite spray heads and stands 9" high to the top of the heads. Shaped like a heart the base measures 7" long and wide at its furthest points. This is truly an outstanding Antique Lawn and Garden GREEN SPOT Sprinkler with a Heart Shaped Base from the Early 20th Century in Excellent Condition which can still be used in addition to making a striking display.
