Cleveland's Veterans Memorial Bridge Ornament by Jim Ptacek

Cleveland Christmas Ornament Veterans Memorial Bridge by Jim Ptacek |Wendell August Ornaments

Jim Ptacek has an uncanny ability of removing the noise, commotion, and everything else we dislike about city life. In its place his photography captures a moment in history that perfectly frames the beauty of architecture that can be so easily overlooked while lost in the hustle and bustle.

In Veterans Memorial Bridge you lose the hum of the highway. From the viewpoint of the Cuyahoga River, the through arch bridge towers over the water and plunges into the heart of the city. The bridge is as big is at it appears. At its time of completion in 1918 it was the biggest bridge of its kind in the entire world!

Our Master Die Engraver Dave Bruck did not take the task of transferring this wonderful still into steel lightly. Painstaking effort was put into each tap of the hammer to ensure Ptacek’s photo, and the bridges beauty, had justice done. Wendell August craftsman have hand-hammered each and everyone of the Veterans Memorial Bridge Ornaments using Bruck’s Die, so each is unique and of guaranteed quality. When your ornament arrives it will be in a handsome gift box that bares the same hammer marks as the piece inside it. You can give it is as a gift just the way it is, or hold on to the box for same storage in the off season. This ornament is dated on the back with its introduction date of 2011.
