    I got this one out of the storage also.The name on it is OGIO.All metal,I have no idea who OGIO is.I looked up the name and it showed golf.Maybe it's for advertising,I looked in golf ads but found nothing. SAM_1526.JPG SAM_1527.JPG SAM_1528.JPG

    Certainly looks like a display piece. And looks like the current logo. The brand was acquired in 2017 by Calloway Golf.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    There is a line of OGIO branded golf/polo shirts. Maybe there is other clothing branded OGIO, too? The item you have looks like the top of a male chest and shoulders. My first thought was that it might be for a polo shirt display. But since part of the logo is on the chest of the piece and would be covered by a shirt, I'm not sure.

    You're not going to find one. A display like yours would have been fairly expensive and produced in small quantities for a limited number of high-volume retail outlets. Have you looked it over for a vendor's name? Might be stamped somewhere.

    It may not be marked. Really doesn't matter. The maker won't add value.

    make one up........
    this isn't art , or a collectable, & you're not going to find them on the net with prices and sales records..!
    It's a store display item that was pinched or tossed when it was no longer of use..

    Sure...someone may like the metal or design....or want to hang their shirt on it....but it is what it is....and no more !

    So, make up your own price....and go from there ! :happy::happy::happy:

    Yes, you will have to determine your own price. The brand itself OGIO seems to do well on eBay. And your display carries the new logo. But shipping would be high. Still, it's very sculptural; perhaps someone will find it an attractive decorative piece for a "man cave."
