Those were standard issue in the elementary & middle schools (maybe still some in high school) in my town when I was that age in 1968 to mid-70s. Probably the town bought them in the late '50s/early '60s as the school system expanded. Maybe some were from the '40s. The base spins off so you can pack the whole thing easily. Heavy, as I remember but very stable. Seemed old to me back then, but now I'd like to have one.

We had a couple in school when I was a youngster back in the horse and buggy days! Solid.

These snare stands show up in the 1935 catalog. The snare drum at my elementary school was a model No. 25 Standard Concert Snare, 8 X 15 with calf heads. First snare drum I ever played on.

I have some Swedish ones, using one of them as a stand for the 40’s air raid siren we use on stage.

They are fine if you want to display a snare at home.

I like the look of that! I'd probably buy one if the price is right. But I already have two Rogers Big R concert stands which I love love love!, so I probably don't have any business buying anything else.

I have a similar, if not identical base from a flood/stage light. Just debating on what snare basket.
Vintage, or more modern........

That looks quite a bit taller than the base of Ludwig (& Ludwig) snare stand. As I remember, the basket tube that went into the base tube was pretty "skinny" compared to more modern folding ones. But it's been a long time....

It is definitely taller. But….. Lowe’s has piping that is the same diameter, and threaded, so I can get a shorter main tube.
