Just visited an old friend in Iowa Falls, Iowa, population 4100 where she brought this piece out to show me. Will be selling this for her to help fund her New Roof. Does anyone have any knowledge of this piece? Should I be posting this in a different forum here? Thanks in advance!! IMG_7260(1).jpeg IMG_7268.jpeg IMG_7261.jpeg IMG_7269.jpeg
