We have owned this spittoon for over 30 years. It has two dents and four hairline cracks near one of the dents - I like to think the dents were caused by being in the way of a cowboy saloon brawl years ago. The Pony Express emblem is embossed on two opposite sides. It measures 11 inches tall by 9 inches in diameter at the top. It polishes up nicely with brass polish. The inside has been washed, but not polished. The base is weighted so it will not tip over easily. A great addition to your "Old West" collection and definitely a conversation piece.
