This is a fabulous French trade sign advertising for signs, paints, varnish, and wallpaper. We believe it dates to the 1920s. This sign was likely originally free-hanging, as it has grommets at the corners, but it has been applied to a wood backing and a minimalist frame added (date of framing unknown). The colors of this piece are truly fantastic, the rich, deep green, golds and reds combine to create a very masculine feel, while the decorative elements soften the overall look. Works well above a piece of furniture, above a mantle, or as a pop of color in an entry.
Measures: 40"W x 60.5"H x 1"D. This piece is framed on wood. There are some losses to the piece, particularly at the edges, which are shown. Some bubbling in the piece and some fading is present.
