I picked this Col-Max up about eighteen months ago in Spain. I paid very little and wasn't sure if it was a genuine item or not, but further research has satisfied me it is genuine. Brass hood, cage and font with a steel base, made in Canada in 1947. Glass is not original. It did not clean up as evenly as I had hoped, the hat is nice, the hood sparkles, the cage probably needs replated and the fount I did not really clean as much as I could the base has an interesting Col-Max wood block ink stamp that I did not want to damage. It's packed away at the moment so all I have are the pictures from the advert. I really need to get it out and take some photographs.
