Bought this from a man on the Peninsula who was selling a whole bunch of railroad and phone stuff his dad had collected over the years for his hotel near Eureka.

As you can see, its a Baltimore Enamel and Novelty Co sign - they were one of the leading makers.

I believe Imperiales Cigarettes was a San Francisco Company known for their 'Russian mouthpieces'. This 21 by 14 inch sign is truly a stunner, with the image of the man in a top hat and tuxedo with a cane and monocle, smoking one of their cigarettes.

    I bought an identical one of these (double sided) 25-30 years ago and really don't know anything about it. May I ask what you paid for it?

    I didn't pay much, it was part of a batch of other stuff... in terms of current value, all depends upon condition. this one's probably worth around $300 (in 2010)
