This is a really nice and hard to find lightning rod in this condition and also this complete. The rod itself is 71 tall from the still intact cable bracket on the bottom to the tip of the bayonet that screws to the top of the twisted metal rod. The steel stand is a side mount with the original green glass insulator inserts. The top one has a little chipping on the bottom of it (see pictures). The ball is a SCA (sun colored amethyst) quilted pattern ball with collars that are in good condition with copper replacement caps (the only thing not original is the caps).
The hollow horse lightning rod is nice and rusty and has one small hole in the bottom leg on one side (see pictures) that sits on an original brass ferrule. Have had this for years and is part of my personal collection. Time to let this one go, and may sell others in the future.
