March 20, 2003 - Dear members of the covered bridgers community:
Three years ago I was at the Waterbury flea market and a vendor had the bronze casting in the attached photos for sale. Being a typical tourist we negotiated a price and ever since I have failed to 1) identify the double covered brides, 2) figure out what it is I bought. I wonder if the membership might be able to help me with these questions.
The piece is a solid casting weighing about 12 pounds with the same bridge on both sides. The square legs are on a 16-inch diameter and have a round about 1/2 inch hole drilled in them; the circular diameter is about 12 inches. It would appear to be a center of a gate is my guess. The vendor told me he bought from a dealer in New Hampshire who did not know the identity of the bridge or what it was from.
I would appreciate any help I could get regarding this item.
