Rare Large Vintage Mr. John Furrier Shop Sign
This extraordinary, rare vintage shop sign is from the the famous, furrier, Mr. John. It was acquired from a Northern California estate.
Mr. John was one of the foremost American milliners of the 20th century. He was more concerned with a flattering fit and fine construction than he was with fancy embellishment. Click here for some history about Mr. John.
I love what the sign says, "Emperor of Fashion!" with a crown.
It's extremely heavy, made of wood. Great lettering. Measures 34-1/2" by 29."
There are some areas of paint loss and small holes from hanging.
This sign is a great piece of art! Also, fabulous fans of Mr. John's furs/hats. A quite unique piece of history. Please click images to enlarge.
Due to the weight and size of this size, it will be carefully packed and shipped Fedex ground.
