This old sprinkler is a “Green Spot” which is cast into the iron base. The base screws to the end of a garden hose and works. Attached to the base are two arms that rotate on the center shaft. Each arm has nozzle whose position can be changed by loosening the knurled nut and rotating the head 360 degrees. The nozzles also screw in and out to adjust the spray of the water. All parts other than the base appear to be cast brass or bronze. They have not been polished and retain a rich brown patina. The base still has much of its original green paint. On the bottom of the base it is stamped with the number 1. I believe this is from the early 1900’s
I have not used this so I do not know how well it sprays but I see no reason that it wouldn’t work as well as it did originally. It is being sold as-is.
The base measures about 8 ½” front to back by 8 ¼” across the back and it’s about 6” high to the top of the nozzle. It is in good condition as basically described above with no cracks or damage to the cast iron.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
