This is a large copper agitator with a diameter of 8" and a height of 6 1/2'. There is the odd dent but really it is in excellent condition for age....around 1919 I think looking at the Registration Mark. A wooden pole handle fits into the top hole and this would probably be aound 3-4 feet in length. We also have a much smaller agitator available but condition is not as prime as this one. In pre washing machine days these agitators were used by hand plunging them up and down in the water filled copper tub to stir an agitate the water & clothes.
