Vintage 1935-1973 38 Year US Gauge Machinist Robot Man Folk Art Service Award

$449.95

Shipping to United States: $12.95

This is a truly one-of-a-kind unique piece of folk art!  This figure was crafted by a professional machinist as a years of service award, and based on the components, is very likely it was for an employee of U.S. Gauge.  That company was based in New York, where the previous owner did reside,  but unfortunately no additional historical information is available on this. 

Extremely well made, the parts within the body are so well thought out that it would almost appear to be a functional automaton.  Mounted on a wood base with 2 small engraved plates that read "38 Years" and "Little Jake C.C. 60 1973".  The face applied to the gauge head is reminiscent of the man in the moon, Art Deco era design - this piece is absolutely awesome!!

Measures 11" tall. Wood base 6" square.
