Important Historic Budd Car Hand Wrought Aluminum Wall Plaque - Hopi Kachina For Sale
PLEASE SEE ALL PHOTOS BELOW. I AM CURRENTLY LISTING A PAIR OF IMPORTANT ORIGINAL 1930s - 1940s NATIVE AMERICAN THEMED ART DECO HAND WROUGHT ALUMINUM RAILROAD CAR DECORATIVE PLAQUES FROM THE WASHINGTON DC AREA ESTATE OF A COLLECTOR OF WESTERN AMERICANA & NATIVE AMERICAN DECORATIVE ITEMS. ( PLEASE SEE THE REST OF MY LISTINGS FOR THE OTHER PLAQUE. ) THEY WERE MADE FOR THE BUDD CAR COMPANY, THE FAMOUS RAIL CAR COMPANY THAT MADE ALUMIUNUM STREAMLINE PASSENGER CARS IN THE HEYDAY OF OPULENT AMERICAN RAIL TRAVEL. THESE PLAQUES WERE PURCHASED IN THE MIDWEST APPROX. 40 YEARS AGO BY THE COLLECTOR. THEY DECORATED A WALL IN HER COLLECTION ROOM. BOTH PLAQUES DEPICT NATIVE AMERICAN HPOI KACHINA FIGURES & SYMBOLS. EACH PLAQUE DEPICTS A UNIQUE KACHINA. BOTH PLAQUES ARE HAND HAMMERED. THEY ARE NOT CRANKED OUT STAMPED PRODUCTION PIECES. THEY ARE BOTH ORIGINAL WORKS OF ART. THANK GOODNESS THE COLLECTOR LEFT AN OLD PERIOD PIECE OF TAPE ON THE BACK OF THIS PLAQUE TO IDENIFY BOTH OF THEM FOR PROVINANCE.(SEE PHOTOS). IT READS: BUDD PC #X68-15528 - HHL&L #641-1904 (REV. A). I RESEARCHED AND FOUND THAT THE HHL&L COMPANY WAS A DESIGN STUDIO CREATED BY PAUL CRAITTE. HE WAS A NOTED INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER, AND DESIGNED PASSENGER CAR INTERIORS FOR THE STREAMLINE TRAINS. BOTH OF THESE KACHINAS CAME FROM THIS DESIGN STUDIO. THE PLAQUES MEASURE APPROX. 23" IN DIAMETER. THEY ARE BIG SUCKERS! BOTH ARE SUPERBLY EXECUTED. THE FIGURES AND DESIGNS ARE IN HIGH RELIEF. THE PLAQUES HAVE BOTH A STREAMLINE MACHINE AGE ART DECO LOOK, AND ALSO A SUPERB SOUTHWEST / NATIVE AMERICAN LOOK. I HOPE THEY GO TO A GOOD COLLECTION OR A MUSEUM. I'LL PROBABLY NEVER RUN ACCROSS AN AMERICAN RAILROAD ARTIFACT LIKE THIS AGAIN. I ASSURE ALL buyers THAT THE PLAQUES ARE AUTHENTIC, HAND WROUGHT & OLD. THEY ARE ESTATE FRESH. I HAVE NOT POLISHED UP OR TAMPERED WITH ANYTHING. I ASSURE ALL buyers THAT THEY ARE NOT MODERN COPIES, MACHINE MADE CRANKED OUT PRODUCTION PIECES OR REPRODUCTIONS. DUE TO SIZE, THIS ITEM WILL BE SHIPPED IN THE CONTINENTAL USA VIA INUSRED UPS. PLEASE NOTE, SHIPPING TO ALASKA, HAWAII OR P.R. WILL HAVE TOBE AIRMAIL & WILL COST MORE THAN STANDARD UPS IN THE CONTINENTAL USA. ** NEVER A RESERVE ** ALL ITEMS I OFFER ARE FROM NUMEROUS EAST COAST ESTATES (MOSTLY FROM MARYLAND, WASHINGTON DC, VIRGINIA, AND PENNSYLVANIA). THEY ARE OBTAINED THROUGH CONSIGNMENT OR ESTATE LIQUIDATION. YOU ARE SEEING ITEMS VERY SOON AFTER I OBTAIN THEM. I DO NOT TAMPER WITH ITEMS AT ALL OR ALTER THEM IN ANY WAY. I WANT YOU TO VIEW THEM JUST AS I OBTAIN THEM. ALL ITEMS ARE BEING OFFERED AS FINAL SALES FROM ESTATE LIQUIDATION WITH ALL WEAR & DEFECTS. HOWEVER, IF I MAKE A GROSS ERROR IN DESCRIPTION, I WILL GLADLY OFFER A REFUND. I AM 100% HONEST AND VERY FRIENDLY. I WILL ONLY CALL AN ITEM MINT IF I TRULY BELIEVE THAT IT'S IN MINT CONDITION. I AM TRULY SORRY, BUT I CANNOT ACCEPT RETURNS FOR BUYER'S REMORSE OR FALSE / FRIVOLOUS COMPLAINTS FILED IN AN ATTEMPT TO MASK BUYER'S REMORSE. PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE THE ITEM HAS ENDED. THE ITEMS THAT I LIST ARE NOT BEING OFFERED FOR SALE LOCALLY AT THE SAME TIME. I WILL NOT END AN sale EARLY TO GET MORE MONEY FOR AN ITEM LOCALLY. ONCE AN ITEM IS UP, IT STAYS RUNNING UNTIL THE sale ENDS. MY sales ARE STRAIGHT FORWARD AND THEY FOLLOW THROUGH. IF I MAKE A MISTAKE IN THE LISTING AND THE ITEM GET'S A offer TO WHERE I CANNOT CORRECT THE LISTING, I WILL END IT TO CORRECT THE MISTAKE(S) & THEN RELIST THE ITEM. COLLECTORS PLEASE DO NOT WORRY. MY ITEMS WILL NOT DISAPPEAR PART WAY THROUGH THE sale. I CANNOT END sales EARLY FOR THE "WHAT WILL YOU TAKE FOR IT NOW" OR "WHAT IS YOUR BUY IT NOW PRICE" EMAILS. I HATE RESERVES. THEY ARE SILLINESS. I NEVER PUT A RESERVE ON ANYTHING. I ONLY USE A STRAIGHT sale FORMAT (OR OCCASIONALLY A "BUY IT NOW OR BEST OFFER" FORMAT IF THE ESTATE REQUESTS IT). ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD TO THE WINNING buyer AT THE AMOUNT THEY WON IT FOR. I NEVER REFUSE COMPLETION OF A TRANSACTION BASED ON WHAT AN ITEMS SELLS FOR. I HOPE ALL OF MY ITEMS WILL GO TO PEOPLE WHO WILL ENJOY THEM. I SHIP WITHIN 5 DAYS AFTER CLEARED PAYMENTS ARE RECEIVED. I ALWAYS TRY TO PACK MULTIPLE SMALL ITEMS IN ONE BOX TO SAVE THE WINNING buyer SOME ON THE SHIPPING/PACKING COST IF SAFE TO DO SO W/O RISK OF BREAKING ITEMS BY JAMMING THEM IN ONE BOX. I NEVER STACK FULL SHIPPING COSTS FOR EACH ITEM ON TOP OF ONE ANOTHER TO MAKE MORE MONEY. IF THE WINNING buyer HAS A PROBLEM WITH AN ITEM AFTER RECEIVING IT, PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE LEAVING ANY response EVALUATION OR FILING A BUYER COMPLAINT. I WILL PROMPLY TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM IF I MADE A GROSS ERROR IN DESCRIPTION. IF I DO MAKE A GROSS ERROR, I WILL NEVER GIVE A BUYER ANY PROBLEMS WITH A RETURN/REFUND OR A DISCOUNT (WHICH EVER THEY DESIRE). PLEASE NOTE: I DO NOT SHIP ANY INTERNATIONAL ITEMS VIA USPS 1ST CLASS AIRMAIL DUE TO LACK OF TRACKING. I ONLY SHIP INTERNATIONAL ITEMS VIA USPS GLOBAL PRIORITY FOR TRACKING PURPOSES & SELLER PROTECTION.
