This fancy painted cast iron finial sure graced something special. (A parlor stove perhaps?) The flair is Victorian with curly cues, ribbon and tassels. The base is threaded to receive a 3/8″ 16 NC bolt.
The finial stands 9 inches tall and measures 5 1/2 inches across at the widest point. The base is 2 1/8 inches across. The iron piece weighs one pound, 13 ounces. Most of its original black paint is intact.
