Item details

Here is a vintage tool, actually an old circus roustabout hammer or mallet.

You know, after the roustabouts finished putting up the massive circus tent, they would employ one of their mallets to run the "Test Your Strength" booth! Probably from the 1930's, or thereabouts.

The overall length is approx 29" The head of the mallet is approx. 11" to 11-1/2" long. The ends of the head are approx. 4" in diameter. The head is encircled by iron bands about 1" wide. The ends of the head are feathered with use. The handle is a bit wobbly. There also a long crack in the head, so I think its tent-raising days are over.

But is ready for use for any wooden mallet application:

Hagrid's tack hammer

calling the meeting to order,

or meat tenderizer,

Or you may just want it hanging around with its heftiness and primitiveness adding "je ne sais quoi" to your digs!

FAQs

There are two basic ways to reduce shipping fees. One is to let me know your zip code. If you are closer to me than the zip code I use for my estimates, it is possible to reduce the shipping fees. First class mail goes by weight only, not distance, so it would be possible to to reduce fees on say, a lot of buttons or a postcard only in rare occasions. The other way would be to bundle purchases. If you were buying more than one postcard or more than one lot of buttons, shipping fees could probably be reduced. Buying something fairly light, (like an elf), with something more substantial, (like an enamel bowl), the two might combine with reduced fees. Please write for firm estimates! I will do what I can!

I am willing to hear your reasonable offer!
