    Hello, does anyone know what this is? I’m guessing object sign? Or maybe caution? Red marbles are marked Persons Majestic Manufacturing. Thanks in advance.

      I know that company made numerous reflectors for bicycles which this looks like one. Always a good idea to help us with measurements? !~

      'Catseye' road signs tend to be 1940's (or earlier) but I can't say I've ever seen any kind of roadway hazard/warning sign of this shape/size. [guessing at the size in relation to your hand in last pic] It still could easily have been some kind of traffic hazard marker (the beauty thing is that there weren't any "standards" for such stuff back then] or maybe for railroad or maritime usage. Cool sign no matter what it is supposed to be?!! :-)

      I’m not sure if I’m responding in the right place but thank you for the feedback. The sign measures 12”x 12”x 1” thick. I also was thinking 1930’s- 40’s myself. Thanks again

      I'm guessing traffic hazzard marker also. I know I've seen this type of thing somewhere.
