A large carved wooden 'point of sale' trade sign

A truly exceptional, very large and very heavy wooden point of sale advertising model.

This beautifully hand carved and hand painted dapper gentleman has his hands held out and would have grasped a trade sign. The only similar piece we can find advertised cigars, but this model can now hold any sign of your choosing, or remain as-is (we've put him with our butcher's sign- not included).

The attention to detail both in the carving and painting are excellent.

A wonderful collector’s piece that we’re sure will find its way into a special collection, or maybe back into a shop, bar or restaurant.

A rare thing indeed.
