"All Honor To The Boys In Blue" Paint-Decorated American Sign, 1866-1880

About

Black-painted American sign with beautiful lettering in a 19th century style, in a crescent-shaped design, probably made for over-door display. Dating shortly after the Civil War 1866-1880, the sign was made to honor Union Army & Navy veterans. While “blue jackets” is a specific Navy reference, the term “Boys in Blue” applied more widely to Union vets in general. A remarkable piece of American folk art due to its form and patriotic imagery. Condition: Several breaks were repaired, but the paint is original.
