Red goose sheet metal string dispenser, American, circa 1920.  The top of the string holder is in the form of a goose with a white beak and a red body and head.  In large white block letters on both sides of the goose's body it states "RED GOOSE SHOES."  There is a metal bracket that hangs from the top of the goose's body which holds a metal wire thread holder.  When the shop keeper pulled down the string to wrap a package the goose's head bobs up and down as though it is feeding. (FA-820) 


Condition:  The string dispenser is in untouched original condition and has scattered pitting to the painted surface.
