Antique Iron Wood Castors 5 inch Rare
19th Century heavy duty industrial casters. Matched set. Each is constructed of 3 pieces of cast iron which pivots 360 degrees and in good working order. The wheels are carved wood - perhaps oak or maple that is hardwearing. Most of the original black paint remains. Each caster has a pair of offset bracket holes, approx 7/8 inch on center wide and 3 1/8 inch on center long. These are unusal and not the kind you come across very often. Did you know that the word "caster" describes someone who casts; while a castor is the object created to roll furniture around?
Measures 5 inch high x 5.5 inches wide and 1 7/8 inch deep
