Shingle signs have a long and fascinating history, dating back centuries, hung outside businesses, taverns, inns, and shops. They became especially popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, along trading routes, and painted with simple designs and featured bold, hand-lettered text.
In modern times, handcrafted shingle signs have become increasingly rare and cherished. Their scarcity adds to their allure, with aficionados valuing their distinctive character and artisanal charm.
