Found this RED HAT FEEDS sign a few years ago in my favorite picking spot just as it had come into the shop. Approx 4 feet x 2 1/2 feet, white embossed letters with navy blue background. The perimeter is an embossed stepped back edge. Overall it is in very good condition with minor wear. I particularly like the simplicity of the sign. My best guesstimate is that it dates to around 1954. It doesn’t appear that the company was in business for many years. It seems like they may have been in the Virginia area and possibly bought out by Ciba-Geigy or some such. This is one of my favorite signs and I would love to know more about it and the company. Anybody out there knowledgeable on these?
