Mixed Metals Fort Jackson Tetons Wyoming Massive Wall Charger

Mixed Metals Fort Jackson Tetons Wyoming Massive Wall Charger

This gorgeous and very large mixed metals Mid Century wall charger depicts the Fort Jackson commercial trading post in Jackson Wyoming against a backdrop of the Teton mountains. It was an estate auction purchase, so I don't know who made it or why. A safe bet would be that it was made for the owners of the business and it hung in the store.

The charger measures 27-1/2 inches diameter. The base metal is copper (some of the silver paint is worn through at the back, exposing the copper). The fort, lettering, and animals (deer and cougar I think) in the border are copper. I believe the silver colored metal is actually silver but I haven't tested it.

I couldn't find a signature or maker's mark. The charger has a hanger on the back and is very good vintage condition. In researching this piece, I found out that trading post is no longer in business. The basic building is still there but you wouldn't recognize it - it's now the home of the Gerry Spence's law firm. I'm certain this is a one of a kind piece. The charger weighs nearly 9 pounds before packing and boxing.
