Purchased through an on-line auction, old school (shudder) bid-a-thon:
A late twenties glass sign with decals and deco stencil applied to back, then an overcoat of reflective paint, then a layer of cardstock paper glued to finish. Stamped "Manufactured by Decorative Mirror Supply Company, Inc. High Point, North Carolina". This is a very lightweight sign, right around a pound, I'd say. It has condition issues, but this particular version is hard to come by, so I'll enjoy this one until I have an opportunity to upgrade. It looks like it's been around for a hundred years (almost!). Condition snobs out there stuck in the past might turn their noses up at this type of piece. I say "thanks, less competition!" I've had good success upgrading then selling the mid-quality items at a profit (on avg +30% after fees). There's a huge market out there if It's The Real Thing.
