Offered for consideration is a vintage 1940-1950s wood-framed shadowbox whisky advertisement of a "true old-style Kentucky bourbon" working distillery in detailed, raised relief art that is brightly and vividly-colored with a heavy plaster relief frame that is finished in gold and then framed in simple thick wood frame. The wood frame measures approximately 27-3/4" x 22-3/4" with a 2-1/2" thickness and is in good condition without chips, cracks or excessive finish wear. It surrounds the plaster or chalkware molded depiction that is a "replica of a very old plaque of an Early Times Distillery" from the 1800s with working moonshine still production of "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky 86 or 90 Proof". There are no damages and very little finish wear to the very nicely detailed and colored sign. This particular sign is not commonly-found as they were never mass produced in a quantity of numbers and only bars/taverns would have received them. In approximately 25 years I have seen only two other examples of this sign and both fetched a hefty price. This piece is very heavy and will be packed well for shipment.
