The story

This is a Barber’s sign in molded glass press with a metal frame. In the Middle Ages, when the majority of the population was illiterate, people designated their place of business by a universally recognized sign or symbol such as this object. However, it is important to know that the barbers of the time did not only cut hair and trim beards, they were also dentists and surgeons.

This object will stand out as a incredible powerful decorative visual object in a huge bathroom of an elegant mansion or NYC loft.
