while the origins of this curious piece of history is unknown, the layer of rust adorning the bottom suggests its age. but it is the word “CHAICGO” adorning the face that really leaves one questioning. extensive online research (aka, google) revealed nothing that might clarify why this creative spelling of our beloved city.

this sucker weighs in at over 22lbs – making it impractical to use as a paper weight – and measures 18 5/8” across at its longest.
