Barbers Trade Sign c.1890

19th Century Barbers Trade Sign

We are proud to offer a very unusual hand-crafted cast iron, double sided, hand painted barbers trade sign. This is a highly decorative subject matter in the form of a gentleman’s curly moustache. The sign shows remanence of old paint still present one side is stronger in colour than the other. This item still has its original wall brackets attached, therefore could easily be secured to the interior of a gentleman’s grooming salon, adding a touch to Victorian style and panache.

Size in inches: H 10” x W 40” x D 5.5”
Origin: French
Period: C.1890 - 1900
Material: Cast iron

Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form, an aged patina and fading of the painted surface has taken place due to age and being kept outside most of its life. One side of the sign shows more old paint than the other. The metal surface shows a wonderful aged look with light rust in sections. This item is over 100 years old and so this is reflected in its condition as shown in the photos provided.
