This vintage-looking metal sign measures 14" X 8". It is hand made in the USA using 24 gauge American steel and a process known as sublimation, where the image is baked into a powder coating for a durable and long lasting finish. It then undergoes a distressing process by hand to give it an aged look and feel.
"Kilroy Was Here" is anAmerican symbol that became popular during WWII, typically seen in graffiti. Its origin is debated, but the phrase and the distinctive accompanying doodle became associated with GIs in the 1940s: a bald-headed man (sometimes depicted as having a few hairs) with a prominent nose peeking over a wall with his fingers clutching the wall.
