A vintage Wooden Ceremonial Gavel, 1940
The turned wooden head made of mahogany has a silvered label that reads “Bears Pres. 40”. The handle too is made of mahogany. These gavels were presented as tokens of appreciation. The gavel was acquired in Cleveland, Ohio so I am unsure what organization this gavel was presented in but it is still a fun accessory or a cheeky gift.
Size: 9.5” long 2.5” high 1.75” deep or diameter
Condition: excellent, silvered plaque inscribed Bear Pres, 40 is tarnished.
