Sherwin Williams Covers the Earth Embossed Porcelain Sign - Very Nice! This sign is 100% authentic.It is the embossed version with raised graphics. Even the SWP letters on the paint can are embossed. It is Porcelain over metal. Has some great patina around edges. Overall in awesome clean condition. From what I've been able to find out it is one of the earlier versions of this sign, just post WWII, late 40's early 50's. It's a two piece sign, can and part of pour are attached to the larger body. As you can see this version has the black painted outline. No touchups whatsoever to this all original beauty. I did clean with mild soap and water but that's it.
There are chips to the porcelain, with the only one not on the edge being in the black painted outline of one of the splash drips near the joint connection. The bare metal has patinaed to almost black so it blends pretty good there. The larger bottom drip has the biggest edge chipping.
There is some water drop discoloration coming straight down the pour and to the letter R in Earth. Causes some slight yellowing to the letters it touched as it went down. There are some light dark rubs to the left of the center lettering, and very minor scattered flea bites here and there.I'm being really nit picky, as I should be, it's an expensive sign. Many of the issues mentioned more than likely can be buffed out if desired, even waxed and polished, but if you are looking at this you already know that.
Super, gorgeous, fairly rare, especially in this condition. I don't think it will last long, first reasonable offer will take it.This ships to continental US only. It will be paper wrapped first, then bubble, then plastic wrapped. Then peanuts in a wood box. I want it delivered safely as much as you. Measures approx 43 1/2" tall and 25 1/2" wide.
