Early German Hand-Painted Hat Maker Sign

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a beautifully painted Iron two sided sign. It was for a cap and Hat maker. One side shows a civilian hat and the other shows a military or police cap. I'm guessing it dates to the late 1800s and is finished with blacksmith iron brackets. It has a wonderful aged patina.
