|An exceptional, painted American trade sign made from carved wood in the full-bodied form of a race horse's head. Wonderful movement, tremendous folk character, and great early paint surface. Found in San Francisco, this carving probably marked a blacksmith's or harness shop. Made circa 1880-90.
Mounting: The previous owner had a taxidermist apply a wall mount that allows for easy hanging.
