Description Zoetrope with wrought iron base.

Consists of three parts: drum, stand, and base on which to turn. The drum is cylindrical with an open top and vertical slits in the upper half of the sides. The outside is painted black, although the paint is worn. On the bottom is a short, narrow metal tube that sits over a threadless bolt in the base and allows the zoetrope to turn. The base screws into a decorative iron stand.
