Product Description

A really cool hand made jumbo jet…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this sign, we believe it would date to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1980s onwards. This was part of a fairground side stall backdrop…

We just love this piece. It’s large, hand painted with a great aviation subject matter. The jumbo has been hand cut out of Dibond (or aluminium) and then hand painted. Close up, it shows a naively painted finish yet it looks spot on and realistic from a distance. The jumbo has a weathered patina, yet it’s a statement piece for an aviation fan or for an alternative wall display piece

We are offering this sign in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The jumbo is great structurally, yet there are some surface marks, scratches and paint chipping. It is also naively painted as suggested therefore there are some tatty areas in places. That said, we feel it simply adds to the authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
