This 34" tall cast-iron valve wheel pedestal base is just begging to be upcycled or repurposed! Perfect for use as a sturdy café table base or flip it over to use it as a workbench or oversized dining table leg, the possibilities are endless! This pedestal has a turned appearance and is coated in layers of flakey gray paint. A small diamond logo with an "R" in the center is embossed towards the foot of the base, some are more visible than others due to the buildup of paint. It has a 4" diameter top with a through hole (hole diameters vary between 1 1/2" and 2 1/2") and a 12" diameter base. Two tabs with holes for fasteners are present in the interior of the foot. The fasteners that formerly held this piece in place were cut for removal, as a result, they are still present in the tabs and will need removal before mounting to another surface. This base is in excellent salvaged condition with wear and tear consistent with use in an industrial environment.
This pedestal was salvaged from the water treatment plant of the former Rock Hill Printing and Finish Company facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Known as "The Bleachery" to locals, the facility was comprised of 6 buildings, the earliest dating back to 1925, and a reservoir. The water treatment plant was added in 1930 under a bond issued by the citizens of Rock Hill. The water plant, and items from it, are featured on Season 10, Episode 7, of the DIY Network Show, "Salvage Dawgs".
