OUTSTANDING SMALL NH EARLY ROAD SIGN
Beautifully designed and rendered in a delightful small size
Rye and Hampton just south of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, ca. mid to third quarter, 19th century. Imagine traveling past this sign, on horseback or buggy, a century and a half ago.
Original dry mustard paint on black ground. Picture-frame molding joined with cut nails. Back board shows prominent hand-plane marks. Just 29 ½ inches x 10, that will go almost anywhere.
Terrific condition with minor wear. Amongst trade signs road signs are scarce-few have survived.
