I didn't know what to make of this at first. It was clearly hand fabricated and had some age to it. Come to find out it was a display piece at the airport behind the counter of a defunct airline. I got it at a storage unit and the lady said she was going to throw it in the dumpster if we didn't take it - so I took it. The buyer was actually the holding company for the records and history of the airline and they have a small museum - we love finding stuff the perfect home!
