Type of Advertising:

Sign

date of Creation:

C. 1920

Up for auction today is a wonderful as-found condition lighted "PRIVATE" office sign - it looks to be a wall hanger from the 1920's as it has an art deco/machine age design.  The brass socket has a patent date of 1910, but these parts were often made separately from the lamps they went in. The construction is mixed metal - the back which is wired to power on the wall and mounts against the wall is steel while the front appears to be a lacquered brass (no magnet stick).  The original ribbed glass sign panel glass itself is in excellent good condition - no chips, cuts, or breaks.  I just wiped this off so there is still some age-dirt on the glass but it looks as if it can be cleaned off.  The original lettering has some loss on the bottom of the "R" and "A" - it is reverse painted and can be easily restored if you wish.  I put a 5 inch bulb in and attached a jumper cord to make sure the light worked and it did as you can see in the photos - use a longer bulb if you want more even lighting.  This is a beautiful sign as-is and you can leave it and hang it or you can restore the paint or even customize the stenciled lettering for "OFFICE" or "RESTROOM" and rewire with a florescent socket if you wish.

 

Please ask all questions BEFORE bidding. Thanks and good luck!!

SHIPPING:

Items are usually shipped within 72 hours of payment receipt (excluding Saturday/Sunday).  Please Note: Shipping costs have gone up due to a rise in prices from UPS and USPS as well as recent cost increases for packing materials and boxes.  The eBay shipping calculator pulls its figures directly from UPS and USPS and, unfortunately, these price increases are out of our hands.
