The Shadow Boxes THE I&O GLASS WORKS

In the few years prior to our move to Paducah, I began creating shadow box constructions, an understandable extension of my interest in model railroading.  I ended up making 12  boxes over a period of 4-5 years. As expected, several were based on railroad themes, and many of them were whimsical in nature.  Today I am posting the first of a series  devoted to celebrating the American entrepreneurial spirit.

 I & O Glass works 

The Insufferable and Obnoxious Glass Works is one of my favorites, and to fully appreciate it you have to read the signage.  It measures approximately 20x26x4", has an open front, and has a light behind the valance.
