This vintage nickel over brass Samson post, or Sampson as it’s sometimes spelled, measures 5 1/2 inches tall, 9 inches from the tip of one “arm” over to the other one, and weighs about 7 pounds. The base measures about 6 inches square, with four mounting holes. It is different than our other offering as it has an opening on one side which you can run a line through before securing it to the post.
