Optician’s Trade Sign in Original Paint
Delightfully quirky optician’s two-sided trade sign probably from the first quarter of the 20th C.—blue eyes with long lashes on one side, green eyes on the other. The painted eyes are protected by glazed-in glass panes on front and back, and the paint is almost certainly original. Foil, sandwiched behind the pupils, provides a glittering effect. One spot of reglazing with associated repaint. Because of the protective glass panes, the paint is in excellent condition and remarkably vivid. 23”W x 9”H.
