19th Century Chinese Doctor's Residence Trade Sign

Price: $1,400.00

Antique Chinese traditional medicine trade sign, 19th century or earlier, a hand-carved and painted double-sided (front and back sides are shown in images) sign with deeply incised and gilded calligraphy on a black background, indicating the residence of a traditional doctor. Fashioned from one very heavy, dense, thick board (perhaps Juniper), with original hand-wrought iron mounts with square nails on the top edge for hanging. The piece is in excellent condition, showing the signs of its age. A scarce example of traditional Chinese domestic Folk Art. One of three companion Chinese doctor's signs (each available separately). Dimensions: 54 in H x 9 in L x 1.25 in W.                                          $1400
