Greeb’s Oysters – Joe Seme


Greeb’s Oysters, Acrylic, Framed size: 10 x 40; Image size: 8 x 38

I collect antique oyster cans, mostly from the Chesapeake Bay. I also collect antique advertising. This painting depicts a colorful old-time sign, probably from an old store somewhere in the Baltimore area. The background is all painted. It is NOT an old piece of wood. Some artistic license was used in the name; just a slight change to avoid copyright infringements! It is nicely framed in an off-white driftwood style frame.

Shipping is included within the Continental United States from the Artist’s location. Buyers outside the Continental U.S. will be charged an additional shipping fee.
