19th Century Tobacconist’s Trade Sign

$ 18,500
  • Description
    ​English carved and polychrome decorated wood tobacconist’s trade sign in the form of a “Turk” wearing a distinctive headdress and dressed in a long robe, this advertising figure relates to many ship’s figureheads in its form and stance which is not coincidental as many carvers produced both. The “Turk” is the less common figure among those used to advertise tobacco. More frequently seen are the “Indian,” the “Scot” and the “Nubian”.
