Found: Folk Art Airstream Land Yacht
I grew up with both Grandpas making me cool toys out of wood, but neither one ever made me a silver-painted Airstream! This was found in Portland and I wish I had known the original creator. It's a brilliant work of art, and something so unique. Signed by the artist, "Keough".
Made with carved wood, a metal wrapped body, rolling rubber tires and plastic cut windows. Length of 21 inches from hitch to bumper, and a little over 8 inches tall. Looks to be about the same scale as the Tonka van I played with as a child.
Whether you own your own Land Yacht, or just aspire too... this is an excellent piece to enjoy on your shelf.
W&F Found pieces are all sold as-is with natural wear and character. These are vintage pieces to be used, loved, and sometimes restored. Please take this into consideration when making a purchase.
We hate to think about it, but sometimes problems occur with our products. We try to make everything perfect and usually over-built, however if something was missed, we want to make sure it's corrected. Wood&Faulk products are built on the premise that they'll last a LONG TIME. Probably a poor business model if we want you to buy more things to replace your old things, but we don't care. We want your items to become part of your permanent style.
WAXED CANVAS CARE
The waxed cotton canvas we use has some special care instructions. Never machine wash or dry clean. Never use soap or chemicals. Usually the best way to clean is with a brush or a water dampened towel. It's a pretty low maintenance product, and should be treated as such. If you do need a re-wax on areas of heavy use, we do sell Martexin Original Wax in small tins here.
The beauty of leather is that it will age and change over time to the way you use it. Certain uses will age it faster... like exposure to water. Try to keep your leather as dry as possible, but when it happens, just make sure to let your item air-dry overnight. You can apply saddle soap or cleaning and protection, or we recommend conditioners from Red Wing Shoes, or from our friends at Otter Wax.
