SOLD Big antique cuspidor with weighted base.

Relic of days gone by when men, and probably some women, would stand at the bar and spit into spittoons located at their feet.  Drinkin' and spittin'...those were the days.
This great example has aged patina on both brass and copper.  White spots in the images below are from lighting.  Since these curious recepticles were placed near the feet, they are usually found today with 'boot dents'.  This spittoon has a couple of boot dents adding to its charm.
Weighted with sand enclosed in the brass base.  Large trumpet shaped brass opening hopes to catch a badly aimed spit.  The center portion is made of copper with the Pony Express Chewing Tobacco Cut Plug logo on both sides.
In good, used condition.  It has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.  The interior base has been cleaned repeatedly throughout its long-life and shows some wear (see image 3).
Measures 10" tall, 9" at widest with a girth of 27".
