19th century French brass butcher’s “Premier Quality Beef” interior shop sign. Large brass shield with engraved lettering retaining original black paint. Most appealing, is the presence of a tarnished patina on the brass, untouched and allowed to develop over time. It is unique for its unpolished, beautiful and rich patina. Original hanging hook at the back – possibly hung high from a rod or chain and displayed tilting forward. Condition is excellent, with normal aging, as shown. One tiny hole, about the size of a pin head at the base of the letter “L” looks to be a production flaw and is negligible in size.
Size: Maximum width is 11 ½”. Maximum height is 9 ½”.
