Product Description

A superb hand made trade sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it could date to the mid part of the 20th century onwards. Its a superb piece, and would certainly be a ‘one off’ too. We would suggest that this would have been hand made by the tradesman himself. We assume that this advertising piece would have probably been hanging outside of the tradesman’s premises too, given the wear and tear…

Made on a thin board and hand painted in Green and Black, the sign is charming on the eye. It’s naively made, yet the perfectly placed holes makes this piece really look like an old shoe. This is a statement piece that would look ace hanging in one’s home or a retail environment…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the entire piece, along with some tatty areas. Structurally the piece is in good shape and it’s lightweight. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
