Cast Iron Oddity Fat Man Head Lid For Inkwell, Jar, or Pitcher

This antique cast iron oddity was likely the top for an inkwell. It is a figural fat man's head. The gent has a bulbous nose and a long fringe of hair. He looks rather surly with his down-turned mouth.

On the back of his neck is a portion of a "tab" that must have been part of a hinge.

Measurements: 1-1/8" high over 1-3/4" across his fringe x 1-3/4" deep from his chin to the "tab"

Condition: (aside from whatever is missing) minor dusting of rust, some green paint on the underside.

Item ID: 5553
