sprayed it with a bronze paint and it does what I wanted it for
CI502-B Rustic brown round cast iron pistols and star with rope trim, this item is a reproduction casting with some degree of imperfection, brown in color, measures approximately 2" diameter with 1" nail (should be pre-drilled to achieve best application).
I purchased these to put on a western/rustic hope chest for my son. The design is even nicer in person than it is online. I plan to purchase more to use as a sort of an “emblem” for future builds. I think the design is pretty unique and is a great accent to help achieve that western look. Remember to pre-drill a hole before you hammer it in so you don’t bend the nail.
