This old sprinkler head screws to the end of a standard garden hose. It appears to be made of brass (non magnetic, stamped metal) in a half-round shape. There is a continuous row of small holes along the outer edge of the domed top with five other holes spaced out on the top of the dome. I have seen this style referred to as a “half fountain”. It has not been polished so it has its nice, aged patina which looks more like copper. The bottom has a pressed, ridged design which gives it more strength. Although it is not marked anywhere that I can see, it is possible that this was made by the Armstrong company of Ohio in the 1920’s or 1930’s.
The semi-circle measures about 8 5/8” across at the outside edge and about 5” front to back by 1 5/8” high in the middle. It is in nice original condition. There appear to be no splits to the metal, no corrosion through the metal and hole holes other than the manufactured ones. The gasket seems like an older one but probably not the original one and it would probably need to be replaced if it were to be used. I have not used this so I do not know what kind of spray it has.
