Quantity: 1 available


Pasteboard advertising sign of clockface with yellow background, white numerals and dark metal, movable clock hands. The lettering reads: "Sappy's Barber Shop. Out to Lunch. Be Back At (time indicated by clock hands). Y'all Come Again. For Colored Only." There is toning to various degrees along all edges along with areas of creasing at two upper corners, though this creaing has been flattened over time and is not particularly noticeable. I'm guessing that the date is between the late 1930's and early 1950's. The sign was manufactured in Pittsburgh and is a great piece of African-American business memorabilia. ; Clockface; Square 4to 9" - 11" tall; 1 pages
