This Imported Van Dyke's Dutch Walnut Cream mirror sign would be the perfect addition to any mancave or dive bar's collection! The mirror is set in a real wooden frame. There's natural aging within the frame itself along with some minor nicks and scrapes as pictured, and the glass appears to be in stellar condition no visible scratches or paint chips.
What makes this piece unique is that it's a shadowbox with a painted mirror beneath reverse-painted glass. There's not much to be found about this brand, minus the trademark documentation on the image you see in the focal point of this piece:
"Dutch women. Carrying items such as buckets or bags. Other flowers including daffodils and irises. Other scenery. Letters, numerals or punctuation forming the perimeter of an oval or bordering the perimeter of an oval. Concentric ovals and ovals within ovals. Ovals that are completely or partially shaded. Quadrilaterals with one or more curved sides."
This trademark was filed on October 28th, 1983, but as of December 23rd, 1991, it appears that the owners of the trademark, "Joseph E. Seagram & Sons, Inc.", failed to file their Section 8 Trademark Declaration in time, and it was then canceled. Such a mysterious brand!
The lettering is extremely bold and vibrant bearing a striking gold sheen, and there is minimal fading to the image of the Dutch woman. All-in-all, fantastic condition for its age.
There is a sturdy wire attached to the back for immediate hanging!
