Outstanding Art School Trade Sign
By far one of the coolest trade signs I have ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. This stellar, vintage 1930's art school sign is very unique. This three-dimentional sign is from the Kalashnikoff Art School, est. 1939 on E. 4th Street in Cleveland, Ohio, and was a school for art instruction and art supplies. It was designed and constructed in an Art Deco style and painted with polychrome textured pigments. "Kalashnnikoff" is mounted on a large artists palette with paint brushes and drips of paint hanging off of one side. Still retaining 98% of its vibrant paint colors. Measuring 26"H x 53"W x 3"D. Basil E. Kalashnikoff (1900 - 1973) was a professor of art and owner, and listed artists whose work has sold in Salzburg in 2010 for $5,462.
