Original painted wooden sign from the Foutz Company located in Baltimore, Maryland. The company was started by two brothers as a dry goods store during the Civil War. This folky, original sign probably dates to the 1880’s. Great paint, great patina. Modern hanging ring has been added at the top. 22 ½”x 7”. Foutz advertising does show up infrequently. We sold a great Foutz medicine poster a few years ago. If you are a Mid-Atlantic collector this should be for you as few Baltimore veterinary pieces are known.
