    Looks just like the one I bought at an online auction about 2 years ago -- think it was about $200

    That sort of describes this one. It appears to have an outer shell, of a dense smooth (non porous) plaster like material that is slightly Ivory in color and is filled with a white more plaster of paris like material. It does not appear to have ever been painted, with the possible exception of the small round base at it's bottom. The lower corner of the banner is cut flat, paralell with the horizion, which is obviously incorrect, perhaps it was a reject? The guy said he had three of them but sold two. He's asking $1000 for it.

    Not Plaster or Steel/Metal, a material similar to Plaster that would survive the Outdoor Weather, as the Building Top Wheel Emblems were.

    Were these originally made of plaster? It appears it might be emameled iron to me.

    At first I thought it was a globe fixture hanging from the ceiling.

    A reproduction of the wheel that was placed atop the Studebaker Proving Ground brick posts. Originally there were 34 of them located along state route 2 six miles west of South Bend.

    Entry guard?

    I saw this at an antique store, it's made of plaster, the wheel is 17" diameter, it does not say anything on the banner on the back side. The guy said it went near the entry of a building, similar to a lion "entry gaurd" you see regularly. Anybody ever seen one in place, got a pic, or know what it might be worth?
