About this item

The French "enseigne" indicates its essential connection with what is known in English as a flag, and in France, banners frequently took the place of signs or sign boards in the middle ages. Signs, however, are best known in the form of painted or carved advertisements for shops, inns, etc. They are one of various emblematic methods used from time immemorial for publicly calling attention to the place to which they refer.

Large towns where many practiced the same trade, and especially, as was often the case, where these congregated mainly in the same street, simple signs of a trade signs did not provide sufficient distinction. Thus a variety of devices came into existence....

This unique shop sign was designed for a Poulterer, it features a giant goose head and is made of hand-painted metal. It is an outstanding piece due to its unusual size.
