    This cupola came off a Sinclair gas station built in the early 20's (pictured). I picked it up in Coral Gables in an old guy's back yard about ten years ago. Love the automobile weathervane which I'll remove and mount when we eventually downsize. I was told the station was built in 1921 so I figure three more years and it's a real "antique."

      Thanks artfoot but I can't imagine how much my back would hurt if I were immortal. Kidding aside, I totally get where you're coming from, but this thing is BIG and it only fits in our current house because of this weird design feature in the living room.
