  • Description:

    Smaller than most sprinklers. Imperfections are obvious in this sprinkler – the tip of the mouth has sagged, and the base clearly touched against something in manufacture. There is a chip off the base, but the base is not round – it juts out at the chip point, and it looks as though the sprinkler touched some other object – glass or otherwise – and the blower merely pulled it away.

  • Built By:
  • Provenance: Purchased July 2013, from California, USA.
  • Condition: Chip as noted above, very much “in manufacture.” Light internal haze.
