Jerry's Railroad Can - JP3280

  • Sale
  • Regular price $11.95


This piece, an old B&M Railroad Water can was painted for my husband as a special gift.  It was begun in a class that I took from Bobbie T, a fun time, and progressed through the next year as time permitted.  The design is symbolic of the time that Jerry worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad.  The frog is a switchman but he is wearing an engineer's cap.  He carries his special railroad watch and switch lantern.
