1885 Painted PA Machine Shop Wooden Trade Sign

Circa 1885: This superb 38" x 19" dated 1885 trade sign in orginal black and white paint decoration hails from Bradford, Pennsylvania, in McKean County, which borders the state of New York. It is here in Bradford, a north central Pennsylvania oil boomtown, in 1875 during the heat of the Pennsylvania Oil Rush that G. W. Ross established his Ross Machine and Repair Shops and ran these businesses until J. H. Ross assumed ownership in 1886. This fine example of historic Pennsylvania 19th century advertising comes to you in as found condition with a great weathered surface and will fit in with any collection of antique American folk art, advertising, trade signs, or regional Pennsylvania antiques. Ex. Kocian DePasqua Antiques.
