Interborough Rapid Transit Company IRT Subway Porcelain Sign.
Made by the Baltimore Enamel Company of Md and 190 W Broadway N.Y
This Sign is very old and Super Rare .Purchased at Hell's Kitchen Flea Market In NYC.

This sign can be found in the Cathedral Parkway/110th Street IRT station...and since it's the oldest line in the system, it's entirely likely that the sign dates to the earliest days of the subway. The line opened in 1904.

    Sadly,I have no real estimate of its true value but for Me ...it was worth paying a couple of hundred dollars to purchase about 10 years ago.
