This 19th century Dry Goods sign came from the Sherman General Store in Rupert, VT. This store has operated under the same name since the 1850’s. Originally part of a larger sign “Dry Goods & Groceries” (see Groceries sign below) it was cut into two signs at some point dropping the ampersand. I was able to buy both signs from separate sources and reunite them. The original sign made in several pieces. There is a break between Dry and Goods which is secured in the back. Sign measures 85 by 12 1/2 inches. Letters are still quite nice.

$695 or $1,295 for both
