Description:  This is a large oval, enameled sign from, at one time, the country’s largest stationery store: Goldsmith Bros. at 77 Nassau Street in New York City. It was also the largest retail establishment in the Wall Street area. Their trade mark was a feather in an ink well. I remember going into Goldsmith’s when I first worked in the Wall Street area in 1958. Goldsmiths founded in 1886 finally went out of business in 1976. I bought this sign because they sold typewriter ribbon tins with brand names of: Starlight, GB and Autocrat.
