A 389-page plumbing catalog issued by the Wolverine Brass Works, 1924.

At the upper left are the words "PLUMBERS / BRASS AND / SPECIALITIES" and at the bottom right is the company name and place of business. On the spine is the word "WOLVERINE" and the letter "K" in gold letters. On the first sheet at the front is a label of a previous owner and his signature above and the stamped date of 29 April 1925 on and below the label. Listings of offerings commences on page 6 with adjustable traps and continues with items such as other varieties of traps; plugs; wastes; sleeves; connections; overflows; valves; stops; tubing; pipes; handles; bibbs; faucets; cocks; collars; nuts; fittings; tees; ferrules; covers; clamps; ball cocks; floats; offsets; fixtures; paper holders; towel racks; shower heads; portable showers; filters; plugs; stoppers; washers; sundries; such as adhesives and tools; and other items.
