Product Description

CAST IRON RECEIPT WALL SPIKE WITH SCROOL WORK
I HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT I CAN REMEMBER THIS ITEM. IT WAS USED IN EVERY STORE IN MY SMALL TOWN WHERE I GREW UP. THIS ITEM IS A CAST IRON RECEIPT WALL SPIKE. THE HOLDER IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. MY GRANDDAD HAD ONE IN HIS KITCHEN WHERE HE WOULD HANG HIS BILLS TO BE PAID. LONG AGO YOU COULD CHARGE ALMOST ANYTHING, NOT USING A CARD LIKE THEY DO TODAY, AND YOU WOULD JUST GET A COPY OF WHAT YOU HAD CHARGED. WALL SPIKES WERE USED AS FAR BACK AS 1879 AND MOST LIKELY EVEN FURTHER BACK THAN THAT IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER. THE HOLDER IS 6 INCHES TALL AND A LITTLE OVER 2 INCHES AT THE BOTTOM. I SAW A HOLDER LIKE THIS ONE TIME YEARS AGO AND IT WAS BEING USED AS A TOILET PAPER HOLDER!! I DON'T KNOW IF THE PEOPLE KNEW WHAT THEY HAD, BUT THEY ARE REAL COLLECTIBLE NOW. THIS SPIKE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN PAINTED AT SOME TIME, BUT MOST OF THE PAINT HAS WORN OFF. GREAT SCROLL WORK. THIS IS A GREAT ADDITION FOR COLLECTORS OF ANTIQUES. THIS IS PART OF OUR AMERICAN HERITAGE, LETS KEEP IT STRONG AND BE PROUD.

YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION IS GUARANTEED.
