Item Overview

Description

Blue Lick springwater resort sign - Nicholas County, Kentucky
"GENUINE BLUE LICK WATER" transfer decorated sheet metal sign. This sign was made as a centennial commemoration to the Battle of the Blue Licks 1782-1882. A progress depiction from two periods, having a century gap, acknowledging the sacrifices which enabled the present day's abundance. The foreground, upstaging the composition, depicts fashionable society socializing at the lavish Blue Lick fountain gazebo juxtaposed against the faded memory of the Battle of the Blue Lick to the hill aside. Gateway Museum in Maysville has an example. That and this are the two to have crossed my radar in the past half century. Sign complete excepting, ½ square inch area, triangular clip of lost metal at viewer's right lower corner. Apparently eight tacks secured the sign originally. Three later nails were used leaving 3 additional holes within the same border. Numerous pecks of paint loss throughout which can be easily discerned in images. Some minor wave and perimeter bends. Good news is a colorful image having three barely noticeable thin scratches. There is no paint restoration. Best dry patina reveling age at a glance. 22" x 16". Unknown maker likely produced within the bottled spring water distribution area of 1882.
