This is the oldest wooden sign I have had the opportunity to come across. It is for a Cooper Shop and it is two sided quite long 104 1/4" long 12" high x 1 1/4 thick. The wood appears to be pine and the sign was found in the western upstate New York region. The interesting part is it was originally one long board but sometime in it's history it was cut in half and notched to be used as two shelves. This actually might be what saved it.One side has some kind of coating on it which we attempted to remove but could not, it might be a stain. We put the sign back together, patched the notches and framed the whole sign with very old wood we came across here in PA. The shadow lettering is amazing and at each end is a drawing, one is a well bucket the other a wooden wash basin. The paint is light as it is kind of faded and if you look at the two closeup photos of the lettering you can see how the wood around the letters has shrunk giving the letters a slight relief look. I will attach two old eye-hooks for hanging. You can see this sign and others in person at Columbia Rivertowne Antique Center, Columbia, PA.
