Sprinkling Sambo Yard Art Folk Art All Original Black Americana Painted Metal From the very top of the item to the lowest point where it pokes in the ground is about 33.5 inches. From his left shoulder to where the hose extends out is about 23.5 inches. There is damage to the paint on his right eye extending past his ear to the brim of his hat as shown. There is pint wear on the reverse area near that hat brim as shown. Piece has some weight to it and is very well made and sturdy. I plugged this whimsical piece to the hose and sure enough “Sprinklin Sambo” works fantastic with no leaks whatsoever , a nice fluid tight stream of water running through the hose and dispersed in a 5 light stream pattern like a flower. This item IS ALL original down to the hoses and again is very well made. Notable areas of where to piece are again wear to the front paint of the face and the reverse back brim area of the hat as shown. Gaskets, hose, everything here top to bottom has that very old 1940s? All rivets and construction on here is great and there are NO STRUCTURAL ISSUES….. NO SUPRISES when you open up the box to wellcome this charming fellow from days gone by into your home. Lastly , because I took him outside to test him out he is a little dirty. Item will be considered in good vintage condition… Far better than many other similar pieces.
