Qurious item here, we cleaned out a 2-car garage that had been rented for 20 yrs. to a gentleman who stored an antique car & misc. items. It was paid one year at a time,in full, faithfully . We recieved a call saying that they no longer were using the building, so off we go to see whats what. Mostly junk car parts, ect. but on the wall hung this.
At first glance & impression, spare tire cover comes to mind, but after a long thought, i dont think so. The dimentions are:
mercury mans hat length- 9"
glass diam- 16"
outside diam. - 24"
height - 3 1/4"
this is heavier than it looks, the "mercury man" is cast allum. , under the glass area there are traces of red paint. Three metal tabs hold the glass in place. My current opinion is it's a Mercury dealers plaque, but you tell me.
