This is a neat pair of vintage cast iron plaques that have American Eagles on red plaques. The eagles are painted black and white and the plaques are painted red. There is nice detail on the eagles, including the wings, and the backs of these are both stamped faintly with Wilton. Wilton is known today for its pewter or armetale lines, but in the 1970s, they were headquartered in Columbia, PA, and were also making cast iron novelty items such as this, that would have been sold in the tourist shops in Lancaster County mainly, but others as well. This pair was probably made for the Bicentennial celebration in 1976. Both pieces are in good condition with no damage, some light wear to the paint (which may be original). There is some rust on the back and I think these were used outside, perhaps on a porch, as they have holes for screws and they could have been hung on the outside wall of a home. They are 4 by just under 5 inches and ready to use again!
