Dutch Irish Hex Signs (H-1)
This is a Zook Novelties Hex Sign designed for use outdoors or indoors. Brand new item, 8" diameter, just the right size for that space on your house, garage, shed, or barn. Perfect for bringing good luck to your household or as a gift for someone you know who could use some luck (can't we all)!
In the 1700's Pennsylvania experienced an influx of German and Swiss immigrants! Over time they became known as the Pennsylvania Dutch. They brought with them designs of birds, flowers and geometric patterns used in the "old country". The Amish and Mennonites kept their properties plain, but in the 1800's the "fancy" Dutch began painting decorations on their barns. Whether to protect them from evil spirits or just to "look nice" people began to call them Hex Signs and they grew in popularity.
Zook Novelties began producing hex signs quite a few years ago in the New Holland, PA area. Today Zook signs are made in Intercourse, right in the middle of Lancaster County Dutch Country.
All of my hex signs are made in the USA!
I want to stay with "made in USA", plus I get to visit them in their shop (they're nice people).This design has 2 Distelfink Birds (double good luck) The single heart above them guarantees favorable relationships. Under the Distelfinks are the trinity flowers standing for Faith, Hope, and Charity. The snake reminds us there is always temptation in life. The Shamrock, of course, adds a bit of Irish luck! Around the outside the scalloped edging means smooth sailing on the sea of life. The dominant color of the sign is green, promising abundance. For good measure there is also a little bit of yellow (for the warmth of the sun) and brown (for the bounty of the harvest) but the main theme of this sign is clearly abundance.
All Zook Novelties hex signs are designed for indoor or outdoor use! They are made in Lancaster County, PA of a tempered hardboard material and I include instructions on how to keep the sign looking good as long as possible.
If you are looking for a sign to make your house welcoming, or a decoration which is just a little different and will get attention, this is it. Our hex signs have traveled from our Lancaster locations and are now hanging everywhere from Hong Cong to Russia to South Africa to Panama and in every US state.
