This mechanical arcade target features a black and white goat on grass with colorful
flowers. Across the pond they favored these mechanical cut sheet iron figures rather
than the typical and more common cast iron figures made in America. Nonetheless,
these folk-art targets display beautifully.
Excellent original paint and patina. (Height: 12.75"; width: 16"; depth: 1.75")
The birds wire toes are slipped under staples on the orb of a 19th century steeple finial creating a nice presentation;
the steeple sits on a museum style steel plate base. Our fabricator is available to create a table or wall mounting fixture.
