    This is what we believe to be one of a kind Vintage Travelers Insurance Metal sign my husband and I won at a local Auction. It's 48" (4ft) wide and 36" (3ft long). We immediately fell for the uniqueness of this sign and so happy we won the bid! :)

      A little history about your "umbrella":

      The only history we have on this item is from the records and management team for Travelers Insurance. The letter states that this sign is from the 1965-1968 time period. It was noted that the local independent agent designed the umbrella so it doesn't seem to have been mass-produced by Travelers. Other then that, the letter stated that this sign was unique and they couldn't exactly pin point it.

      Here is a plastic sign being sold on eBay, but I doubt that it's a vintage item.

      Here's a timeline of the red umbrella:
