Republic of France Antique Sign More DetailsONLY ONE REMAINS AVAILABLE. Many reproductions floating out there but the actual antique versions will have raised letters with gold gilding (flaking; not silver) and a silver back (not gold; money would never have been wasted gilding the rear of a sign). Original rust all over adding to the beauty of owning a true piece of history. Measures: 18 1/2 x 14 1/4" with 1" wood bracing on back originally used to hold smaller French flags. A perfect addition for the collector who wants an authentic piece of history. France, circa early 1920's.
