A couple of years ago I got this iron catch-all that I was intrigued by. I really like its shape, color and patina.
Currently it serves as the mail catcher under our mail slot. Its original purpose may have been as an ashtray with sand loaded in the conical bowl.
It’s about three feet tall and has no markings except for an enigmatic “18” on the bottom of the base.
I have no idea where or when it is from but we dig it!
