Best Life Outfitters presents this antique handmade and handpainted trade sign. It is clearly a barber pole, but with a special twist that I’ve not encountered before… It’s in the shape of a lighthouse. The barber pole came out of a collection of longtime antique collectors who originally found it in the state of Maine. Guaranteed to be authentic and as described. Please check out our feedback and 100% satisfaction guarantee. § Condition: It is in excellent condition with no signs of damage. § Age: Mid 20th c. § Measurements: Roughly 4¾ in diameter. Folk Art Maine Barber Shop Pole Trade Sign – Lighthouse Shaped Painted Wood. Presents this antique handmade and handpainted trade sign. The pole is good and heavy, weighing just under twelve pounds. The paint is alligatored and has seen some flaking in spots, but is mostly stable and should remain that way for a long time to come. There is no real damage to the piece, except you may be concerned with the missing chunk of wood on the back. Well, that chunk would have been removed by the maker or the original owner in order to mount it too the building that it would have hung from. It you look closely, you will see that there are still a couple of nails embedded in there. Now to guess at the age of this thing. I suppose it could have been made as early as the mid 19th century originally, but the paint looks later… Probably around 1900 or so. There have been a couple small touch ups, but nothing has been over done in my opinion. You could easily re-hang it, as originally intended. But it does stand up as well, just ever so slightly off kilter. I certainly anticipate that you will like it just as much as I do. It is in very good to excellent condition for a trade sign of this age. Roughly 8″ in diameter x 25″ tall. Please enlarge photos for the best view.
