This vintage hand carved, hand painted wood Planter's Peanut Advertising sign was, to the best of our knowledge, made in the 1920s. The Mr. Peanut raises off the back panel in varying dimensions. The highest point is approx. 1 1/12" high. He is 24" tall. The frame around him measures 37" high and 28" wide. It reads, 'Planters Peanuts Sold Here" "5 Cents a bag" "Nourish The Brain & The Frame!" It's a General Store advertising sign that was owned by Senator Emmanuel Gold of New York. It has the hanging hardware on the backside. There is some wood separation but is reinforced in the back. There are some paint scrapes on the black wood frame but to us only adds more character. This is a very nice and very RARE piece of American Advertising History. Also, We LOVE made in the U.S.A. products. Please examine all the pictures carefully and convo us with any questions. We would love to hear from you. Ref. BC24
