Description

New Product!

Authentic historical reproduction. We came upon this lovely old piece of Americana quite by accident, and couldn’t wait to have some local artisans re-create G. H.’s sign to preserve a time in history and evoke a bit of nostalgia. Crafted from rustic wood, then hand-distressed, our wall hanging will add character to any kitchen or casual room, if only to remind you of old ways and old days. A wonderfully unique gardener’s gift; no two pieces are the same. Handmade, 39-1/4”L X 26”H.

The story: Good old G. H… there are just some people who were born to be in the spotlight. G. H. Green, a storyteller and a grandpa and an apple grower since his grandpa, was a salesman to his very core (you’ll pardon the pun). He loved making a living selling people what they needed, and he did a fine job of it. Didn’t take long for G. H. to find a way to combine his love of growing fruit trees with his remarkable salesmanship: he went to work for Stark Bro’s, traveling around Ohio, selling fruit trees to homeowners and landowners and farmers. He became something of a legend in that midwest state, and somebody thought enough of old G. H. to make a sign and put it out by the road, letting all passersby know who sold these fine trees. This gesture (which was surely the genesis of social media) caught on, and soon the Stark Bro’s bear logo and G. H. Green’s name dotted the Buckeye landscape. There’s probably a couple of old signs still standing out there, if you look hard enough.

The Stark Bear Painting
The bear painting was given as a gift and the person receiving it was totally overwhelmed with the wall art. The size of the painting was surprisingly large and will be perfect for a wall at the Bear House (the name of our house in the SC forest area)

Gorgeous Wall Hanging
A gorgeous, well built wall hanging, equally apt for the living room as it is for the fruit shed.

Love the rustic, distressed look!!
For anyone who likes primitive antiques/reproductions, this is great. It's about 30x36 and will fill a big empty space on a large wall. The Stark Bear is a real piece of history and that really adds to its appeal. I was given this as a gift because I love Stark Bro's and I am so thrilled to have it!
