1890s Frost's Paint Wood Trade Sign Hand Painted On Blue Sand Antique Buffalo Ny For Sale
This is a very old sign advertising 'Frost's Flexible Lead Paint.' This was from the estate of an Oregonfamily originallyfrom the Auburn/Buffalo area of New York State. John C. Frost's Paintwas a business that operated in Buffalo up until about 1902, when he moved to Indianapolis, Indianato join theConsolidated Paint and Oil Co. This probably dates to the 1890s. This has atextured dark blue paintwithsand on the front surface,surrounding with what I believe is silver foil lettering, border and embellishment. There is blue over white enamel paint on the back and edges. This is painted on a single wood plank and measures 8 3/4 by 56 in. by about 7/8 in. thick.
This has some wear but is in generally quite good condition--some edge chipping and rounding/some moderate blemishes to the painted surfaces.
