Rare Antique~original 1880s-1910s W. E. Garrett & Sons Tin Scotch Snuff Sign For Sale
This nostalgic beauty is a very rare original tin "W. E. Garrett & Sons Scotch Snuff" advertising sign, from the late 1800s-early 1900's; probablypre-1910.Has surface rust, wear, minor chipping, and (wall) paint around the edges, as well as holes along each side for nailing to a storefront or wall. The colors are still vibrant, and the back is painted a dark robin's egg blue. Not many tin signs survived from this period, as they weren't nearly as durable as porcelain signs; so even if this wasn't a rarity, it's unusual for being in such good shape for its age and material (a "W. E. Garrett & Sons Scotch Snuff" advertising is very hard to come by regardless of condition). In all my hours of research, I was unable to find another sign like this. A fascinating piece of antique advertising!
Has damage, as I mentioned above. I haven't tried to clean this at all...I'll leave that to the buyer's discretion. See photos.
18" tall x 12" wide x 1/32" thick.
