Hi, Wondering if anyone can help me out with estimated age of this bottle sign? It's 33 1/2" tall. Does "Trade Mark Reg." offer any indication? Will appreciate any input from sign or bottle pro's in the know. Thanks.

    Gotcha,it does look old,Dave, but there was a Ande Rooney version of this made also,but I think in 40" size. Could it have been aged to look old? If not marked, I would be suspicious of age/origin. Still like the looks of it though!!

    Hi Bernie, Yeah, it's a mystery piece. I've looked it over and can't find any maker's mark. It's thin, thin metal, probably the thinnest gauge sign I own, and the image is very detailed. I like it too, just looks nice in that spot, tilted just so. Thanks for asking about it, I hope it regenerates some views and somebody can tell me about it.

    Wow, I would guess this Bottle sign to be from the early 50s Dave! Great find man. Please send it to me when you get tired of it ;)

    Thanks Perry. Any thought about whether it had a cap piece at one time? I haven't seen another like it, I don't think, without a cap incorporated into the sign.

    I don't think it ever had a cap. But it's still a little bit of a mystery.
    Sorry, wish I had more for ya.

    Smooth edges, definitely a die cut job. I'll try to take some close ups and post later today. Thanks for your help everybody.
