This fantastic, double sided, paint on metal figure was made as a promotional piece by the Fischer brewery for their Pêcheur (Fisherman) beer.
Measuring just over a meter and half in height, this is a very impressive piece.
The original mounting points remain on the base and to the side of the beer glass, he is fairly stable free standing and brackets to the bottom could be used for a more permanent, stable mounting.
The sign does, as would be expected, show some signs of wear; there is surface corrosion and areas of paint loss but this adds to an already characterful piece. The colours remain bright and the detailing on the face etc remain clear.
He stands 1.51m high, 96cm wide, the two sides are 2.5cm apart and including the brackets at the bottom it is 9.5cm deep.
