Star on the wall

Anyone know if the (iron?) star on the wall serves any function? It might be just decoration, but I'm guessing it is a decorative dressing for a bolt through the wall.

[Veteran Shorpyites will recognize that bit of hardware as a turnbuckle anchor, or "turnbuckle star." - Dave]

"Less Fatty in the Patty"

was the slogan for Jesse Jones' sausage down here in the Tar Heel state. Didn't work for link sausage.

"Get some pork on your fork"

We had a catchy TV advertising jingle Down Here (Australia) back in the 1970's which always sounded just a little bit risque. It would look pretty cool splashed across the side of that van. Far cooler than "The Best by Test"!

Herman!

Spooky!
