Found this old guy at an Antique mall in Tucson this past weekend. Judging by how worn it is, it's gotta be 40 years old at least. Wonder if this came from anywhere of note. It stands about 6 feet...the base was added for support. It has a fair amount of rot and is very dry, but pretty stable.

Anyone have any ideas on this ? It has a really old school style, so I'm thinking it has to be from a bar, restaurant or motel, but it was probably outside in someone's yard for a long time too.

Well, I certainly don't have any info on it, but it's really cool! Great score! Did you have any difficulty getting it up to the Sky Lounge?

Not at all...it's really lightweight and dried out. AND it detaches from the stand. Easy as pie.
