Incredible Zinc Horse Head Farrier's Trade Sign Item # F6285

Circa 1880

$4,250.00

When it comes to 19th century trade signs, this is a horse of a different color. Made of zinc, this sign was formed using the repousse method of molding metal – by hammering and forming it from the inside out. While the form and composition is stunning, we also love the perfectly worn gilt finish, which remains largely intact, despite the sign's 125 year lifespan. We imagine this hung on a wooden placard above a farrier's workshop or at the entrance to a stable. Probably of French origin.

Condition notes: The worn and weathered nature of this piece is its very essence – all of the cracks and gilt chips are commensurate with age and only add to the character of the piece.
