10 Dr. Daniels’ Horse & Dog Remedies Metal Hanging Sign

Extremely rare, early tin sign with cardboard backing and hanging string advertising Dr. Daniels’ Horse & Dog Remedies.  19”x 13”.  This is the same image that is found on the VERY DESIRABLE Daniels’ tin Dog and Cat Remedies display cabinet.  It features a beautiful lady seated in a chair with a cat in her lap and petting a Boston Terrier looking dog at her feet.  The sign hanging on her wall, in the background reads:  “KEEP THE PETS WELL.”  There is some scattered wear to the background behind her chair and on the wall above the cat.  There is some denting mostly confined to the edge border.  The sign may have been coated with a clear coat to protect the paint, at some point.  The top banner advertising and the imagery of the lady and her pets is strong with no significant damage.  This is only the THIRD example of this great sign that I have ever seen.  I saw one in an auction when I was just starting to collect about 30 years ago when I could not afford to buy it. I was able to purchase an example a few years ago, that is currently in my collection and this example, that comes from a long, held collection.  Hard to estimate as this will be a major addition to any collection it enters.  I have to believe it will end in the $2000-3000 range.  Start the bidding at $300 with no further reserve.  Please call if you have any questions about this great sign or any other lot, prior to the last day of bidding.
