The figurative translation of the large calligraphy is "spring gives good protection to this home." The figurative translation of the smaller letters is "given to Yi Ren Zeng from her brother-in-law Ce-Xun to celebrate her 70th birthday." This magnificently carved sign has two repaired cracks and some repaired edge damage. Dates from the Dao Guang Emperor period (c. 1840).
