Conversation decor for any CRANE BUSINESS office, home, collection, or commercial location.
From the early 1930s through the 1970s coin-operated CRANES like this one were widely popular all across the U.S. in penny arcades, but also common in casinos,taverns, night clubs, retail store vestibules, and especially at fairs and celebrations. Traveling carnivals almost always featured a mini-arcade of these crane games which were called Diggers.
