This is a very nice double sided Jewelers antique Pocket Watch trade sign with elaborate and ornate bezel design. The watch face reads Ken Jones Jeweler and the frame reads Watches, Clocks and Jewelry in raised letters. The detail of the cast frame is sharp and clean, as seen on the bezel and flower medallions. The paint is not original.
These authentic pocket watch trade signs are very hard to find. They make exceptional display pieces in your home or in a vintage and antique sign collections.
