Write a Review
Shipping Included


This industrial, wooden foundry pattern was designed and manufactured by Sun Shipbuilding & Drydock Company in Pennsylvania. We later salvaged it from a nautical collector's warehouse in New Jersey. The pattern measures 23" long x 14" wide with a vividly painted, 16" projecting shape of a crankcase core. The size and unique qualities of this piece make it a perfect industrial era decorative item. The piece is sturdy, with stamped and hand painted markings showing the part numbers and other hand painted details.

Condition: Very good condition. Solid body with surface scuffs, paint loss, fading and patina as expected with age and use. Coated in a high end water-based sealer.

Item Measurements: 22.5(L) x 14(W) x 16(H)
