Huge Sign 48" Tall Original Paint Outdoor Sign1863-1892

Please be patient there are 26 photos to be loaded in this sale.

Up in this sale is an original outdoor trade sign for Felton, Rau & Sibley's Mixed Paints. It has its original paint, and is extremely good condition, considering age. We were able to date this definitively between 1863 and 1892 and are putting down a circa date of 1870's, when they started pushing their Mixed Paints. It measures approx. 15 1/2" wide and 48" tall. An amazing piece.

We found this early history in the January, 1913 edition of The Painter's Magazine, which allowed us to know this sign was made between 1863 and 1892.

The business of Felton Sibley & Co Inc was established August 1, 1863 at the northwest corner of Fourth and Cherry streets Philadelphia where the store and business offices remain to this day. The original members of the firm were Samuel K Felton and Conrad F Rau who formed a co partnership under the style of Felton & Rau A few months later Edward A Sibley joined the firm and the style was then changed to Felton Rau & Sibley. From small beginnings the business has grown steadily so that to day its products are among the recognized standards of the trade Starting with the grinding of colors and the making of varnishes and japans other kindred lines have been added from time to time. The output now covers everything needed by the automobile and carriage painter. Of the original partners only Samuel K Felton remains. In the year 1849 at the age of 17 he entered the employ of C Schrack & Co the oldest varnish house in America his connection with them contiuing until 1863 at which time he withdrew having been a member of the firm for two years. From the days of his boyhood down to date he has been in the same line of activity for sixty four years in the same block on the west side of Fourth street between Race and Cherry streets. The junior officers have been connected with the concern for the past twenty five years starting as clerks after the completion of school days. At the close of the year 1892 Conrad F Rau withdrew from the firm by reason of age. The name was then changed to Felton, Sibley & Co at which time the junior members were admitted to an interest in the business. Following the death of Edward A Sibley in the year 1910 the concern was incorporated January 1 1911 under the laws of Pennsylvania. Estimated shipping weight, (packaged) is 15 lbs 8 oz in a 50 x 20 x 5 box.

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.


is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.

Treat all of your customers as if they are family.

Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.

BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.

ONE - Who We Deal With

We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.

TWO - Shipping Charges

We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!

THREE - International Shipping

We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.

FOUR - Insurance

's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.

FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted

We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.

SIX - Time Frame To Pay

We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )

SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame

We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.

EIGHT - Local Pickup

Sometimes it makes sense to come by and pickup your items. Sometimes an item is just too big for any other option. If you've arranged local pickup with us, you must pickup the item within 30 days otherwise it will be subject to storage fees or relisting.

Finally, NINE - Communication

Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
