An ornate grey and gold pressed cardboard advertisement for Robert Edwards. The advertisement features a large horse being led by a man wearing riding clothes. The man holds a riding crop in one hand and leads the horse with the other hand. A low brick fence and foliage is pictured behind the horse. " For Satisfaction & Good Value in Harness & Saddlery / Robert Edwards / Currie St New Plymouth / Repairs neatly executed " is written on a gold coloured side at the top right facing side. " C.T. Ingleman " appears to be impressed in the lower right facing corner. A thin piece of nylon for hanging is looped over the horses head and is also threaded through a hole in the sign on the right facing side.
