    So my wife's grandma told me her elderly neighbor passed away and her widowed husband gave her this antique chicken waterer. Well now she's moving I have inherited the waterer. The original owner claims it is over 100 years old. The hardware and material seems to fit this claim but other than the #2 inked on it there are no markings. I was wondering if anyone has seen one before or could perhaps give me a manufacturer's name.

    That thing is fantastic! I'd put it on a shelf for display - it's age and condition make it too good for the chickens!
