A vintage string holder. Cast iron, rusty, rustic metal dome shaped, open cage-like vessel, that twists off of its fluted, urn-like base, to dispense string from one of its many holes.

The heavy piece is made of solid, cast iron that was once black, but is almost entirely coated in a rusty patina. There is a barely visible "Taiwan" branded into the metal on the underside of the base.

The base is held only the bottom of the egg-shaped vessel by a screw, that because of time and rust, would not be able to be unscrewed, although this would not be necessary.

The top portion of the open, cage-
like egg or dome shape has an extension or tab on each edge that fits into the grooves on the base of the dome, locking it into place with a twist.

Height of the piece: 5.75" or
Diameter of both the base: 3 3/8" or
Diameter of dome at the widest point: 4" or

Weight: 1.25 lb.

The purpose of this is to hold and dispense string or twine, as mentioned above, but there is ample room is this piece to hold a tea light candle or small votive candle, safely, because it is entirely iron. The light and shadows it would caste will be amazing.

Just simply as a art piece or small vessel for your tiny collection, it would be brilliant.

Condition:
Rustic, rusty vintage condition, completely intact and whole.
