From my research this would have been placed on top of a building where GAR (Grand Army Republic) meetings were held. However, I have recently learned that this is a reproduction. A noted expert in folk art has confirmed that this is a reproduction and he has seen about 6 of these over the past 20 years. Dimensions: 35 inches tall to the top of the hat, 24 ¼ inches tall to the top of the gun and 18 ½ inches long at the bottom.Appears to have crackled paint with possibly another layer (or more) of paint over it. Some areas of paint is missing. All welds and rivets are intact and structurally sound. Weighs: 4 pound 9 ounces. Offered in as found, as is & as seen condition and no guarantees or warrantees. Photos are part of the description see all photos and details. I use the appropriate size box with packing materials with an accurate scale. Cranky Arts Vintage & Unusual.
