I acquired this sign from a former employee who worked for dealer right up to the end. I was told it hung over a fireplace in their showroom. The Krajenke slogan; “hard to spell, easy to deal with”. Sign is a custom made 1 of 1 piece of Americana. Needs some fine cleaning and dusting. Loose feathers / parts can be easily manipulated to your liking. The hawk is solid copper and has developed a nice patina. The underside of the wings has turned a really cool red color in spots. The hawk is holding an old piece of barn wood with the dealers name spelled out in crudely cut out letters. There is a steel framework inside the bird complete with a hoop up top for hanging. 50″ wide, 30″ tall, & 15 deep. 30 minutes from Flint, and 45 minutes from Ann Arbor.
