The metal rod is straight and has an aged and rusty patina. The metal clamps are strong and secure and the knobs turn with ease. The Erlenmeyer flask and glass test tube are new, old-stock. The flask has some dust in it, but the test tube has been sealed in its original container and is safe for beverages). Please use the ZOOM tool to get a close up view of this item and its condition.

WHY WE LOVE IT
The base is awesome! We love the chippy, rusty, aged patina of this very heavy base! It has natural character, aged to perfection in an old science lab. It doesn't get much better than that!
Sure, this lab stand will work for your home laboratory, concocting cool inventions. But there are other fun uses, too! Here are some ideas for using the lab stand:
- Floral Vase - Fill the flask and test tube with water and add your favorite fresh cut flowers or greens. Set the stand on your center island or table for a unique centerpiece.
- Home Bar Beverage Holder - Pretend you're a mad scientist and fill the flask and test tube with your favorite liquor. Then when it's time to mix drinks, just pour shots out of the flask.
- Mad Science or Halloween Decor - Fill the flask and test tube with water and add dry ice for a foggy effect. You could also add colored water - think murky green - to the flask and pretend it's the potion of life at a mad science or Halloween party!
We're sure you'll find lots of uses for this!
