This is a very interesting diminutive tree hitching post for possibly a goat, dog or horse. It is small in stature, 33 1/2" tall cast in two parts with a very unique birds nest in the top. There is also a spring inside that the original chain is attached to that would ease the pull against the attached animal. The paint appears to be original and in excellent condition with minimal wear. We date this to sometime in the early 1900's.
The post is 33 1/2" tall x its base of 5 1/2" in diameter with two notches for attaching to the ground. The iron folk art stand we made for it is 12" in diameter.
