This is a TRUE Junk Iron Piece (as opposed to some of the replica ones coming in from China these days). Nice and colorful. Of COURSE it has rust and scratches and weld burns as any TRUE Junk Iron piece SHOULD. and of COURSE it's not "perfect".....TRUE Junk Iron isn't SUPPOSED to look "perfect"...because the imperfections are what makes it UNIQUE and truly HAND constructed.
This piece is made by hand. Each piece is cut out and welded individually. One can only imagine the amount of work that goes into this. And one of the WONDERFUL things about Junk Art like this is that NO two pieces are EVER exactly alike. Each is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of "Art"!
There is an iron bar that runs across the back of this piece which holds the letters in place AND a couple of round washers welded to it in order to easily hang it.
Hanging it measures 24 7/8" long, 12" tall and 1 5/8" deep.
