ANTIQUE "AN ANCIENT GUIDE - BOARD FOUND IN WEST GREENWICH" FOLK ART WATERCOLOR PAINTING. THIS IS AN AN INCREDIBLE ORIGINAL PAINTING. I HAVE TRIED TO DO SOME RESEARCH ON THIS GUIDE BOARD BUT HAVE COME UP EMPTY. MY UDERSTANDING OF WHAT THIS IS THAT IT IS A SIGN THAT WAS PUT UP BY TRAVELERS AS THEY PASSED THROUGH WEST GREENWICH.

THE SIGN IS A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT LETTER CODES THAT TELLS OF WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE AND JOBS AND EXPERIENCES COULD BE EXPECTED TO BE FOUND IN WEST GREENWICH. A TRAVELERS CODE - A VERY EARLY FORM OF "CONSUMER REPORTS" OR "YELP". THIS SIGN SAYS "FOR CATTLE TO SCRATCH THEIR ASSES WITH" -- KIND OF FUNNY. THE PAINTING ITSELF IS A WATERCOLOR ON PAPER WITH THE IMAGE MEASURING 6 X 9 1/2 INCHES ON A SHEET MEASURING 10 X 14 INCHES.

A GREAT IMAGE OF THE OWL SITTING ON THE SIGN. A WONDERFUL PIECE OF FOLK ART. THERE IS THE OBVIOUS BROWN LINE FROM THE ORIGINAL WOOD BACKING DOWN THE MIDDLE BUT IT DOESNT REALLY TAKE AWAY FROM THE CHARM OF THIS WORK. THE TITLE ALONG THE BOTTOM IS HAND PAINTED AS IS THE RED BORDER OF THE OUTER EDGE. I DONT KNOW IF IT IS THE ORIGINAL FRAME BUT IT SEEMS TO BE PERIOD WITH SOME RETOUCHES AND MATCHES QUITE WELL.

FRAME MEASURES 12 1/2 X 16 1/2 INCHES. DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THIS ONE. SEE IF YOU CAN FIND ANY INFORMATION OR ANOTHER PAINTING OF THIS SUBJECT. A TRUE EARLY PIECE OF AMERICANA!!

CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS EXCELLENT PIECE!! PICTURES ARE AN EXCELLENT INDICATION OF CONDITION. CHECK MY FEEDBACK AND YOU WILL SEE THAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE HAPPY.
