Convair 440 Round Acrylic Ornament
An upgrade and enhancement to the earlier Model 340, the Convair 440 first flew in 1955, and introduced weather radar, enhanced soundproofing in the passenger cabin, and an improved engine exhaust design.
Usually seating 44-50 passengers, the 440 was popular in the second half of the 1950s with many airlines, including 11 in Europe, 6 in the U.S., and others in Latin America, Japan, Indonesia, and Australia. 181 were built, and they gave long service with many airlines after the initial users moved on to larger types.
An artistic interpretation of the aircraft’s side and top views is laser-engraved with exacting detail onto a round acrylic crystal ornament, measuring approximately 3.4 inches in diameter, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. For best display clarity, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the ornament, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.
As a gift, or as a treat for yourself, these are a perfect way to add your favorite airplanes of the past to your today! Use them to decorate for the holidays, or to brighten up your desk, office, or special area of your home or work space all year long.
