From my personal collection, I have had these in my china cabinet for about 30 years. I have never used them, displayed only. I have decided to downsize a bit and am letting go of many of my favorite things. I would like someone else to enjoy them for years to come and I am also afraid that all of my favorite items might end up on the quarter table at a garage sale. lol…. This is a neat old piece and I have a couple with an office collection. This is from an old drugstore and is a very neat piece. It has a cast iron base and a nail type top for holding prescriptions. It is great for holding invoices or as in my case, just displayed with other office products. This piece is marked on the bottom, made in the USA and the number 6. No damage of any kind. It is 5 7/8" tall. Please note: I have 2 of these. Please specify which you would like. The first one is in 4 pictures. The last 5 pictures are the 2nd one. The second one is a little more ornate and a bit older.
