Antique glass framed gold foil shopfront sign for Dr. G.W. Millard's optometry practice in Wisconsin.

Millard, described by Optometric Weekly in their September 10th, 1925 issue as a "live wire optometrist", was instrumental in bringing to justice a man who violated optometry law by posing as a professional despite not having any of the credentials.

This sign is constructed from textured gold foil acanthus leaves with inlaid black lettering and slight corner embellishments. The maker's mark can be found along the bottom edge.

Exhibits minor signs of wear including chipped/missing corners.

30" W x 9" H
