Peter Koenig

Peter Koenig creates museum quality 18th and 19th century trade and inn signs. The artist has spent many years experimenting with materials and techniques in order to achieve this high level of representation. He uses both new and aged wood and found objects, such as old shutters, doors, box lids, etc., when appropriate. Koenig’s artistic ability and attention to detail allows him to create a finished product appearing to be an original period piece. Whether the sign is a reproduction or an original design, the goal and the challenge remain the same.  Peter koenig was deemed one of America’s best traditional artisans for five years by the directory of traditional crafts for Early American Life magazine.  For more examples of Mr. Koenig’s work please visit
