Description Cast iron bull was made as an early perfume dispenser. Made to be mounted onto the wall the bull would eject a mist of perfume to the patron's handkerchief when a penny was inserted at the top and the horns were pushed. It was very popular in the early 1900s. The bull head is now mounted over a black metal base.
