This is a Vintage Block and Pulley – Upson-Walton Co. from Cleveland Ohio. The Upson-Walton Co. was a historic member of the Cleveland downtown business community. Originally starting as a grocer, Mr. Upson saw the opportunity to supply marine items to ships passing by the river. The company moved locations in the 1960’s, so we know that this pulley is from before that time.
Hang it from the ceiling or just surround it with other nautical items. This Vintage Block and Pulley would be a great addition to your nautical collection!
This is being sold on consignment from a private collector in the Cleveland region – and we can confirm that this is from a Cleveland, Ohio manufacturer.
