Pierced ware, the early name for punched or pierced tin, was as functional as it was decorative during Colonial American times. Our Large Primitive Star showcases the early craft of tinsmithing that became even more popular among Americans when they could finally produce their own tin following the American Revolution. Today, hand cast from pecan shells and resin, our ultra-durable, all-weather, Primitive Star plaque resembles a wood frame surrounding a traditional, pierced, tin star a symbol of good luck and great fortune.
This fanciful antique-reproduction of a framed hammer and nail decoration is hand-finished by North Carolina folk artists. The big, decorative plaque featuring a red, "punched tin" star motif, shows fine detail and dimension.
Primitive, Americana star makes a splendid, unique gift and is sure to brighten and beautify home and outdoor surroundingswhether displayed to express American pride, pay homage to a time-honored tradition, or simply to remember and enjoy a distinctive piece of Americana art and craft. Made in USA.
