Iron Top Hat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

It always seemed odd to me that they would cast a hat in iron. Sometimes referred to as spitoons I used to use it to hold change or money. Now I have it mounted as art on a base, as an object akin to a Magritte, in old silver paint. height on base 12 inches.
