Antique Whiskey Still, built in Pittsburgh Pa, by the Howard and Rodgers Co. circa 1830's/
Hand hammered copper throughout, riveted, and breaksdown for transportation. Has a twisted, wrought iron stand (added later) and would make a show-stopper for a micro-brewery.
This is a real piece of Americana, and displays the craftsmanship of our history. It was refered to in the "Baby Grape and Huskey" novel series, and used as a 'home' for the characters during their travels.
It measures 34" wide (without the spout) and nearly 6'-8" tall w/stand.
It was found in a barn loft and restored to it's current condition of 95%+
