5 Color Arts & Crafts Era Barber Pole

Circa 1900-1925: Found in St. Louis, Missouri, this 41"H x 9"W x 9"D barber pole has a fantastic original five color red, white, blue, black, and gold paint decorated surface and an unusual square (rather than round) construction with canted sides, molding, and even graduated square blocks on the top and bottom of the pole (in place of the traditional ball). These design techniques that emphasize the pole's simple lines date this graphic trade sign to the arts and crafts movement of the first quarter of the 20th century. There are variuos typical nicks and paint loss to the honest weathered surface, but this striking barber pole with superb folk art appeal remains in original as found condition and is guaranteed to please.
