Art DECO JM PARKS Sign - Reversed Painted Bevelled Glass and Foiled Plaque
SIZE: 8 7/8" L X 3" H X 1/4" D
COMPOSITION: Deep Beveled Glass with Reverse Painted in Black with Flecks of Silver or Mica (might be the foil showing through). Foil letters which show through the stenciling cutouts "JM PARKS". The sign or plaque is backed in metal with holes at East and West so it can be mounted.
CONDITION: Estate item. Very Good for it's age. Some wear to the outer metal sign frame to be expected with age. No chips, cracks or flakes to the glass. Reverse Painting has held up wonderfully as has the foil.
ESTIMATED AGE: 1918-1925
COMMENTS: This is probably one is the nicest example of an ART DECO name sign, most likely door sign I've seen in long time. The time it took to create one of these compared to the manufacturing done today is pretty unbelievable. It's a great display piece for Art Deco decor.
