Shipping Included


This industrial, wooden foundry pattern was designed and manufactured by Sun Shipbuilding & Drydock Company in Pennsylvania. The handmade wooden pattern is 29" wide with an interesting, slightly curved shape. The size and shape of this one makes it the perfect size to DIY into a garden door for fairies or elves. The manufacturer's name, part name and number are hand painted on the inside wall, reading, "S.S.B.Co", with "Cupola Door (Charging)" and "380-4-65-1 & 2".

History: Sun Shipbuilding & Drydock Company was a major shipbuilding company in operation from 1917–1989 in Chester, Pennsylvania on the Delaware River.

In 2017, this foundry pattern was salvaged from a nautical warehouse in New Jersey. The pick was featured in Season 9, Episode 8 of the DIY Network show, "Salvage Dawgs".

Condition: Very good condition. Solid body with surface scuffs, paint loss, fading and patina as expected with age and use.
