Just a sweet old cast iron steamboat or riverboat, very heavy for its size so great as a paperweight, but also just set somewhere. It sits fine upright, though leans a little to one side. It is possible the surface of this piece was once painted, but the paint is long gone if so. It definitely fairly old but I haven't found its match, and don't know much about it. A pretty great little object though for sure!
2 3/4" long x 1 1/2" tall x 3/4" deep.
