Original 1866 Chromolithograph. 20” T x 27” W. Rare advertising sign for the Putnam Nail Company, makers of hot-forged hammer-pointed horse shoe nails. The company began in 1859 in Neponset, MA, outside of Boston. By 1891, nearly ten tons of nails were produced per day by 400 employees. A great piece of equine memorabilia. Fair condition, with some minor cracking due to age.
