This is an original 1920's painted wood sign that hung outside a general store in St. Thomas, Ontario. It comes from a high quality 30+ year local collection with several pieces of significant historical merit. This sign truly has it all - colour, content, size and age!! Painted wood signs from this era are becoming increasingly difficult to come across, especially with content like this!
Condition: Exceptional 100% original condition. The sign has not been cleaned or enhanced in any way. The original dry paint surface shows uniform wear and crazing, as should be expected for a sign that has seen outdoor use in Canada. One piece of cove moulding along the lower edge is missing, but can be easily matched to the existing trim. No attempt has been made to clean or enhance the natural patina on this sign.
Measures: 72" wide x 19.75" high x 2" deep
