Description

AMISH TIN BARN STAR 29'' WHITE made in USA

Barnstars were meant to represent the mark of the builder, but became more frequently used for aesthetic purposes and were added to the building after construction was complete. Enthusiasts have traced a number of wooden barnstars to individual builders in the Pennsylvania area, where numerous examples can still be seen.

Barnstars were used in the United States during the 18th century and as late as 1870 in Pennsylvania, where their popularity increased greatly following the Civil War. Their regular use preceded that time, however, and stars were commonplace on large buildings, particularly factories, in pre-war Richmond, Virginia.

Barnstars remain a very popular form of decoration and modern houses are sometimes decorated with simple, metal, five-pointed stars which the makers describe as "barn-stars". They are often deliberately distressed or rusted, alluding to the traditional decoration.

These barn stars are hand pressed by Amish farmers, out of old salvaged tin from roofs from  barns and out-buildings. The tin is corrugated which gives the stars character. They have a primitive and rustic look, with old paint, wear, and some rusting. Because the stars are made by hand and from old materials, each will have variations in shading, peeling, small nail holes and wear then the ones shown. The stars are also non-returnable for these reasons.

Emballage parfait mais forte humidité dans le colis, les grandes tailles Sont tachées de rouille un peu partout ...est ce normal ?? Toutefois ceci n’enlève pas son charme à l objet

Comment from Le Comptoir Americain the 04/01/2021
Bonsoir Stéphanie, Merci d'avoir pris le temps de noter la qualité de nos étoiles Amish. Les étoiles sont fabriquées à partir de récupération des toitures en zinc des granges des communautés Amish. Comme c'est indiqué dans le descriptif produit, il est fréquent qu'il y ait des tâches d'oxydation, et mêmes des petites perforations ce qui participe au charme de ces étoiles. Quand à l'humidité constatée dans le carton d'emballage, elle ne peut résulter que du temps de transport car les étoiles et les cartons d'emballage sont stockés dans notre entrepôt qui est couvert et chauffé. En revanche il n'est pas impossible que les cartons soient exposées brievement à la pluie lors des chargement entre les plate-formes de transit et les camions de livraison. Je profite de ce mail pour vous souhaiter une bonne année 2021. Cordialement Philippe
