Offered is an absolutely delightful, vintage 1940's, hand-made barber's sign available for your collection. The sign is created on what appears to be a mat board surface and is encased in an older frame. The sign lists the various services with the price of each posted on the right.

This neat sign measures 14 inches high by 11.5 inches wide, and the frame is approximately 16.5 x 12.5 inches.

The condition of the sign is good, noting clear, crisp lettering with light foxing, mild edge wear and a few tiny blemishes commensurate with age. The older (circa 1920s) frame sports an old, light green, crackled and worn painted surface and pairs well with the barber's sign.

Found in Georgia outside of Savannah, this sign likely was the creation of a small town barber or his associate since it was less expensive to hand-craft a sign like this rather than to formerly commission the creation of one. Prices for a haircut ranged from 50 cents to $1.00 from the mid 1940's to the mid 1950s.

Ready to hang.
