    picked this up a auction when helping my buddy pick up all of his stuff, this what i chose for helping him,

    pulled right from the loft of the building that used be the wood/spencer plant on east 61st, it used to hang in there lobby.

    picked it up cause i thought it would look cool, a google search about the wood & spencer company produced a copy of the "automotive trade directory" from 1922 came up with a advertisement from the about there "castle nuts"

    it is heavy, and the black velvet very delicate , but i will wait before i replace it

    Pretty neat! I like the way they designed that and I also think the torn backing gives it some character and lets you know its not a newly done piece of artwork.
