Tap Handle #598: Rolling Rock

Tap size:  9.75" tall x 4" deep
Rarity:  readily available
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

This is what I would classify as a "toy on a stick", and it costs a bit more than I usually spend for that kind of tap, but it is really beautiful. The white horse head has the appearance of marble or alabaster, and the labels on each side have metallic flakes in the green that make them shine. In fact, they are so reflective that some of the photos appear to make the tap look defective! The tap is sculpted to curve forward, giving it a depth of about 4" and forcing me to move the stage back to take some of the photos. It can easily be found on the secondary market, but commands an unusually high price.
