Absolutely incredible, antique hand-painted sign from the Maclay & Co. Limited Thistle Brewery of East Vennel, located in Scotland. Establish in 1875 by James Maclay the brewery produced beers and ales for over a hundred years. The company was sold in 1994 and name was changed. This sign is from the original brewery offices in East Vennel. A lovely, rustic patina is present on the hand-painted lettering. Solid wood construction makes this piece fairly heavy (about 65 lbs). Two large eye hooks are attached to the back for hanging.
