Full Bodied Fish Form Trade Sign

From a Fisherman's Supply Store
Well Patinated Repousse Metal
With Original Painted Surface

English c. 1870

14.75” high x 12.75” wide

Ref: 37/8

Created in the form of an outsized fishing lure, complete with a massive original swivel attached to the dorsal fin, this full bodied and repousse sheet metal trade sign is a rare survival. The fish retains much of the original painted surface and is now mounted on a bespoke made stand. In excellent condition and with provenance to a respected private collection, this is a genuine collector's piece and an interesting example of folk art sculpture.
