So, I picked this up on one of my outings and only after I got home began to wonder if it's a reproduction or not. I'm thinking it most likely is but it's still pretty darn cool. (I have no clue why the 2nd photo looks so different. Has to be the camera, couldn't possibly be the operator)!
It is all brass and weights 10 lbs x 26 1/2" tall or 4.55 kg x 67.56 cm I hope those numbers are correctly converted. There are Phillips head screws near the top holding the base together, I think that should have maybe been my first clue, am I right about that? (I just looked up Phillips head screws and they were invented in 1934). So that could mean it did come from the Art Deco era, right?
I did go on-line to check for any clues to help me identify this, only to be more confused, as usual! ;)
I honestly don't know. Is there someone here that can ID this piece. It's pretty awesome either way and will look much better in front of the fireplace than the black mesh (brass or iron) one that's there now!
Not sure where to categorize this.
