My dad makes each unique folk art piece from hand and they are usually fairly big and heavy. This sign, for example, measures 19" (height) x 39" (width) and it weighs nearly 8 lbs. As I mentioned in the listing title, my dad only uses aged and weathered old wood and while these materials add to the rustic look of each piece, this old wood is usually a lot heavier than what you will find on newer, imported items.
So please keep this in mind when you go to hang this sign on a wall (as the mounting hook/bracket will need to be sturdy and reinforced to handle the weight). Finally, I should also mention this particular sign includes twelve (12) glass eyed Pikie Minnows and an old steel rod with a Pflueger Supreme reel. These lures are genuine (and not copies or remakes). I just want to confirm my dad spends a lot of time individually wrapping and packing each of these folk art pieces to ensure safe transit.I have a ton of boxes and packing materials at our shop and I've watched him take more time then he would probably care to admit packing these offerings. When we have talked about this, he always says that because he spends so much time making each unique piece, he just wants to make sure it arrives safely to its intended destination. The time adds up because he will usually cut-down/alter boxes and packing materials specifically for each of these folk art offerings, which is a slow and tedious process. If you have any questions, just let me know and I will talk to my dad (and get you an answer). You may visit our store by clicking on this "Store Home Page".
