Whimsical Garden Sign. This hand-painted and very large sheet-iron sign is a wonderful example of 20th century country Folk Art. In excellent condition with some surface rusting it can easily be mounted on a wall or barn, and will add a note of whimsy to your garden, sunroom or kitchen. Please note that the sign is not bent in the middle. It is an optical illusion caused by narrowing in the middle (see image #4).
