We love to celebrate good Folk Art wherever we find it. Here is a great sign painted on a truck door. The door is roughly 21" square and 2 1/2" thick. The copy reads: W.W. Smith & Son Chillicothe MO PRODUCE The lettering is painted gold with a red shadow border. The quality and style of the lettering belies an unprofessional sign painter.
The door is interesting. It is sheet metal mounted on a wooden frame. The door has no window so it must have come from an early, open cab truck, likely from the 1920's. The door surface and lettering appear to be original.
A truly great find for the Automotive/Folk Art collector.
