This American beauty of the Victorian Age couldn't vote, but she could certainly refinish the family furniture with Perma-lac! This 18-3/4" x 26-3/4" shaped litho sign has an embossed border and was designed to be hung like a picture frame. As can be seen in the catalog photo, this sign displays areas of surface wear, crazing and chipping (primarily in the printed faux wood grain border design). In most spots this only serves to reveal the pink base coat under the printed litho image, providing a unique and appealing look to the early ad piece.
Estimated Value: $1,000 - $1,500.
