SKU: RC0712.

Product Description

A superb ‘life size’ display figure…

While we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we understand that this piece came from the entrance of a watch makers’ shop. This could date to the mid part of the 20th century, but we think on inspection that it could date to the last quarter. What we can tell you is that this is a cool piece, well constructed and probably a ‘one off’!

Made on wood, then hand painted, this piece stands around 1.8 metres in height. The best bit is the ‘painted pocket watch’ in the chaps’ hand, that has a metal chain protruding and hanging from it. This gives the piece a 3D dimension, and a nice little twist. The sign could easily be hung on a wall in ones home or a retail setting, via the ready made wooden attachment on the reverse…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Structurally the entire piece is in good condition, with some natural wear and tear, surface scars and some paint chipping. There are some small surface losses here and there to the wooden frame, yet they are not detrimental to the overall structure and of course the look and feel. It’s maybe a little tatty in places, yet we feel this simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
