is a vintage 1800's wooden Pompier Ladder.App. a little over 12' long and app. 12" wide at the rungs. The steel hook is app. 32 1/2" long. T is a steel band around the entire piece. T are L brackets that go on every rung but they alternate between sides and they look to be original.It is in good shape with just a little bit of surface rust and one tit on a rung is gone. Original finish, it could be stained and sanded to look new ( I don't know why you would ). This piece is in very good shape for it's age. A great piece to add to your collection . It must be picked up due to it's size but I would consider driving a short distance.
