A wonderfully painted wooden two sided sign advertising Groceries and Provisions. The sign is painted on an old ironing board probably maple wood, not uncommon as ironing boards made of this material did not warp and were readily available.

The sign was painted by Damon Herbel Shuey:
2. Damon Herbel Shuey (6) was born July 15, 1869. In
his younger years he worked at coal mines as slate-picker, in the
summer and went to school in the winter. He afterwards worked
in brick yards, in steel works, saw mills and other hard work.
He afterwards took up sign painting and is considered very good.
Lebanon, Pa., corner Spruce and Guilford Streets is his residence.

The sign is from the late 1800's to early 1900's. Amazing that he signed the piece and to have specific provenance on a hand painted sign is rare.

The sign is in excellent condition with more wear to one side as expected form an outdoor sign. As stated painted on a wooden ironing board, 63 1/4" long x 11 3/4" wide and 7/8" thick.
