Masterpiece Museum of American Folk Art piece in this RPPC




Incredible, original early 1920's RPPC, Real Photo Postcard of a High Wheel Bicycle Carving that is now in the Museum of American Folk Art in NYC.

Currently listed on eBay, the seller's description continues:

According to a newspaper article recently it stated that the Trade Sign which is in the Museum was a "life-size wooden messenger mounted on a high-wheel bicycle that served as a trade sign for a repair shop in Vermon". This Photo shows the Sign at S.V.Holden, Antiques, Brattleboro, VT Wantastiquet Inn. The other amazing and more prominent subject matter of this photo is the Huge Presumably Carved Stagecoach and TWO HORSES.
