Signs of honor were given as tokens of honor for a person who did something significant for the community or in acknowledge of a respected person’s birthday. The sign would have been hung in a scholar’s studio, office or prominently displayed in an entrance hall. Made of northern Elmwood with brass character, this 19th-century sign of honor describes in gilt characters a person of extraordinary integrity, one who never spoke poorly of others or said negative things.
