Extremely rare and early Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett and Company of Chicago diecut fish-shaped advertising sign. This original and unrestored sign is heavy enamel paint over an early masonite material. I have never seen another example of this sign, nor has any other long time collector that I have shown it to. While difficult to date, I believe this sign is from before the mid teens (Pre-1915’ish). Around the mid-teens, Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett and Company used the trade name “OVB” denoting, “Our Very Best” line of merchandise when referring to their fishing tackle, and otheritems such as pocket knives, etc. With no sign of the OVB logo on this sign, I can only deduce it pre-dates that period. This sign is 24 inches long with minimal condition issues. You will likely never seen another one. Please check my other auctions for other early original advertising signs: Winchester, Peters, UMC, Heddon, Pflueger, Ammunition, Powder company, fishing tackle, fishing, hunting, fishing advertising, gun advertising.
