Hi all, firstly thank you for looking and just to get it in early, I am not looking for a valuation! I have, however had a piece of Guinness artwork that I really know nothing about. I believe its an outdoor sign from a pub or similar but I literally cannot find another anywhere for any information.

Brief Description:

Wooden frame, 22" by 27" slightly arched top and black frame, there's no artists name on it, however I am pretty confident it's painted by hand and not mass produced! It shows the Guinness Toucan flying away from what I believe would be the Irish coast, with 2 pints on its beak. The bird itself is 3D and actually carved out of the picture. The only text on the sign reads GUINNESS, which is why I believed it would be an outdoor sign, just to advertise the pub sold it.

I absolutely love it but a friend recently enquired about it and I realised, I know nothing about it at all, as I bought from an auction ages ago now just because I liked it! So I'd like to try and trace back who or where it might have been produced. The likely hood is that it's a perhaps 1960/70s replica or done by a talented amateur maybe so any input or info is much appreciated, if anyone can indeed offer some insight! Sorry if I have posted this incorrectly or broken any rules!

Thanks in advance,

Sphen
