Vintage Mid Century Pair Wall Art Beatnik Jazz Musical Instruments - For sale is a pair of mid century hand colored wall hangings with musical instruments in a beatnik or jazz style. The instruments on what appears to be faux wood formica include bongo drums, banjo, clarinet, horns, and a guitar - along with a metronome. The colors used for the instruments are aqua, orange, black, off-white, and gold.

The colors and brightness in the 4th photo are closest to the real colors and brightness, although they still aren't quite as intense as in the 4th photo.

Each wall hanging is about 16 in. high, 9 in. wide, and 1/2 in. thick at the edge. Each has a brass or gold tone hanger at the top - please test for strength before hanging.

On the back of one of the hangings is what appears to be the original price tag, "$10.00 Set". On the back of both is a paper label which reads, "Guaranteed Hand Colored".

CONDITION: The pair has no cracks, chips, or breaks. The hand-colored instruments are also in good condition with a few minute scratches and flakes, with the exception of the gold saxophone - which has a lighter area (see 4th photo). There are some areas where the formica has lost some of its shine.

My home (and I) are smoke-free.
