Brass & Painted Cast Iron Steam Engine Dipstick
A Rare and Very Unique Brass & Painted Cast Iron Dipstick and Storage Pedestal. What a Show-Piece!<br /><br />Origination date and manufacturer unknown. No makers mark found. Engraved within the brass footing of pedestal is "MADE IN USA, a "1", and what appears to be a "U" letter or symbol. Just a very nice looking article!

A very rich combination for extraordinary display.<br /><br />The condition is very pleasing.
