Hand-painted advertising sign - good condition - around 1990
|Age:||Second half 20th century|
Hand-painted advertising sign for a hairdresser. The painter signs with the name A.D. TalloH. The letters A.D. stand for Aimé Décor. This artist lives and works in Douala. The sign comes from Cameroon, West Africa. This hairdressers sign with five male heads is painted with industrial paint on plywood. Made around 1990. I bought it in 1998 from Mathijs Blomer, timber merchant in Laren, who regularly travelled to Cameroon.
This sign measures 76 x 21 cm. It is an original, little used hairdressers sign. It is in good condition. Minimal restorations at the corners.
Pick up in Amstelveen or shipping in package (T&T) with PostNL.
The Tropenmuseum Amsterdam has included work of the painter TalloH in the collection.
