A wonderful brass barber pole, with the swirled striping painted in red and silver, the turnings done in blue and green, and the ball in brown. Originally this would have been displayed outdoors or just inside the door, with a mechanical device that caused it to rotate. Please note that the silver fittings on the top and bottom, which go into the original holes, are new, and were placed there (and can easily be unscrewed) for easy mounting and display.

The colors and integrity of the paint are excellent, and overall condition is very good, with a few dents and scratches. The pole is 23" in length and 4" at its maximum diameter.
