Dovetailing in woodworking is common, but for antique metalworks is uncommon! Look at this nice handmade piece and imagine mass producing these for todays market...you`ll never make a profit!. Artistry and functionality was the norm then, and luckily for the collector they didn`t make too many of these! Still in excellent condition it has no markings except for some numbers on the bottom. Standing at 12" with a base diameter of 5.5" it is an elegant piece of Americana worth collecting. Don`t hesitate to ask any questions.
