Long Description:
Intended as a grabber for Franz Bakery, this loaf of bread really does draw one's attention. It's high enough that it can be used as a landmark in the area. It rotates atop a steel pole and is lighted at night, making it even easier to spot. The loaf appears to be made of fibreglass or a rigid plastic with a partial aluminum frame and is on the order of 20 feet long X 7 feet high X 6 feet wide.

Franz Bakery is a fourth generation, family-owned baking company based in Portland, OR. Since 1906, they have been baking for the Pacific Northwest and now have bakeries in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, California, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. Started in 1906 by a pair of brothers from Austria, Franz has become the "largest family-owned independent bakery on the West Coast".
