Featured is an amazing self-framed tin sign from the Diamond Dyes Brand, which was made by The Wells, Richardson & Company in Burlington, Vermont. The Diamond Dyes Brand is best known for their wood spool cabinets which had about a dozen different tin sign scenes on the cabinet front doors. These dyes were sold by General Stores all across the country in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
