Wow what to say. This is a wonderful wall decoration that I've had and enjoyed for many years. It has always been a great conversation piece as it looks so funky, with the different layers of paint and many different shaped timbers. You can appreciate the effort that went into making this dia cast. The overall shape looks like a big smiley face and with the strong metal parts it is perfect for an industrial setting.

    It is actually a wooden pattern plate used in the sand moulding/casting process. The different colours are a code to indicate things such as where sand cores are located and where future machining of the finished casting will be. The 2 holes at either end are for moulding box pins to ensure that the 2 halves of the mould are in exact alignment each time. This information was given to me by Dale and gives a professional view. Great guy. Thanks Dale.
   It has SLOT  END  stamped on the left side and 3475 NSWGR on the right side( zoom in to the 3475). On the edges it says NSWTD. It's made of hand carved in timber which is all screwed together from the back and then hand painted. I would love to know the history of it. I believe it to be the brakes for a train or tram but am not certain. This is a very unique piece and one of the best examples of dia casting i've ever seen.
Dimesions are 68cmL 43cmH 12cmD.

Photos do not do this piece justice.
