19th Cent Antique Bakery Trade Sign Crowned Pretzel Swedish Bageri Pennsylvania:
$1,500


Up for sale is this amazing, one-of-a-kind bakery trade sign from the late 19th century in Pennsylvania. The iron storefront sign features an impressive five foot frame, with gold painted wood pretzel and iron royal crown, a chain-suspended sign and clever iron pretzel motifs along the bottom.
The embossed letters on the sign are pretty faded and very hard to read but I was able to trace the letters "BAGERI" on one side which is the Swedish word for Bakery.
From 1850-1925 one fifth of Sweden's population emigrated to America. While many settled in the midwest, a significant number went toPennsylvania where it some towns it was very common to hear Swedish being spoken.
Approximate Measurements:Entire sign: 59" x 25"Pretzel: 19" x 12" x 2"Crown: 6" x 6" x 6"Chain suspended sign: 24" x 10"Weighs about 28 lbs.
Condition:Letters are mostly faded from the chain suspended sign. One side has large block letters with the letters "BAGERI". Other side has a smaller cursive font that is very hard to make out. Normal age wear, rust, and paint loss. Pretzel shows heavy paint fading/loss as well as cracks including large heavy crack on right side and crack in in the middle. There appears to be a piece of wood broken off from one side of the pretzel. Crown seems to be a little loose with silver paint loss and with some rust.Needs a good cleaning which I will leave to the prospective buyer. No returns so please inspect photographs carefully and contact me if you have any questions.
NOTE: Due to size, this will need to special shipping charges that will be determined once the ship to address is finalized.
