19th C. Polychrome Barber’s Sign

Distinctive “Barber Shop” sign from the last quarter of the 1800s. Instead of the typical turned wooden post from the 1920s, this was a working trade sign that was screwed to the wall outside the shop door. Contained inside a faded yellow painted frame, the diagonal red, white and blue stripes make the lettering pop. And the crazed surface of the paint is perfect. Without question, one of the better trade signs I’ve ever had. 32’’ x 16” Ca. 1880.
