These Keepsake Plaques highlight the beautiful photography of John Kucko, from John Kucko Digital! Whether sitting on a shelf or a desk, each plaque has the history of the bridge on the back, and also make a nice addition to a current collection such as the Cat's Meow™ Village pieces.
The plaques are available in two different styles:
#1. Autumn Black (Does NOT include Medallion! Plaque only!): Image captured by John Kucko in the Fall of 2015, features a gorgeous array of colors, and highlights the trestle in all it's glory. We are pleased to have been able to partner with Sign Language, Inc., in Perry, NY, who produced these sturdy and decoratively cut plaques. They feature the stunning Autumn image on the front, and on the back, the history is highlighted in white on black. A beautiful addition to display in your home! (Plaque size: 6 3/4"x4 3/16"x3/4")
#2. Summer Wood (Does NOT include Medallion! Plaque only!): Image captured by John Kucko in August of 2015, features the 1944 Nickel Plate 765 steam engine as it crossed the 1875 Iron Portageville Bridge on a historic voyage, pulling hundreds of passengers in vintage cars. The plaque is handcrafted from reclaimed hardwood, featuring a high quality image on the front and the history on the back, all printed by Olive & Ink, LLC of Perry, NY. The plaque has a protective matte coating that also brings out the richness and character of the natural blemishes and old nail holes in the wood. The last ever steam engine to cross the trestle, this plaque showcases a close up of the bridge, a wonderful reminder of the 142+ years of history of our beloved trestle! (Plaque size: 5 3/4"x4 3/8"x15/16")
