Double-Sided Shoe and Bootmaker Sign



Northeast America, ca. 1870. A highly visual professionally painted sign for the shoe maker "J. Meier" a survivor of a time when shoes were made by hand by craftsmen and adverstising was typically limited to an attractive posting at the shop-front. Painted pine with sand ground, the sand being a common texture employed in that period for signage backgrounds. This sign has survived in very good condition, with both sides remaining impactful, offering the option of hanging on a wall, or between rooms where both sides can be appreciated. All original except for an old replacement to the bottom section of molding only. About 30 inches wide x 22 tall x 2 deep (at the moldings). Once in the collection of the Dexter Shoe Company.
