Wagon Train Plaques

These plaques are listed at Worthopedia http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/pair-1937-folk-art-carved-wood-marquetry-wagon .   The backs are signed by Russell M. Blood
Isn't it interesting the extent of the variety of items that were made by our parents?  I remember that the hanger was two pieces of leather strips tied in a knot at one end and the two loose ends glued to the edge of the plaque at the top.  Very original.

The letter and the vintage pieces are from Nikki Stahn Anderson,  it was a real thrill to receive these items especially with a letter that shows their history.
