    Technically not mine yet, just newly "requisitioned" today from a very gracious friend's garage, now on its way to more proper display on a wall somewhere in my house instead. ;-) :-) Only time will ultimately tell how long it ends up residing here...? (but I won't be in any hurry for it to depart again? <lol>)

    There are already several other similar signs posted here, this is just one more example for the Show & Tell archives. Measuring 1' x 2', it is made of rather heavy steel with porcelain enamel finish on both sides, now showing relatively minor damage at a few spots mostly around its edges. The others who've already shown theirs mostly attribute a 1920's-30's age range to it, also like those there are no maker's marks on it to narrow its origin any further. I don't have any reason to think it is any more or less "original" than anybody else's. :-) :-) :-)

      THANKS VERY MUCH to SO MANY of my CW friends for tapping your <love it> buttons for this fun old sign!! bobby725, officialfuel, Newfld, fortapache, trukn20, farmlady, shughs, rustyboltz, valentino97, blunderbuss2, purvis, jscott0363, Anik, Manikin, Longings, & leighannrn -- I'm SO happy y'all also enjoy seeing it, even if it isn't the completely most unique thing in the world?!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

      I've just swapped out one of yesterday's pics to show the wall in my little kitchen I chose to hang it on, at least for the moment. Being mostly yellow, it fits right into the kitchen decor rather perfectly, methinks...? ;-) That 'crate looking' thing beside/under it, BTW, is simply a panel made up from actual 'crate lumber' intended to hold pans on steel's just sitting there on the floor for the moment (until I move an electrical outlet for the 2nd time <rolleyes> and mount it to the wall itself, where it will then be a few inches further up which will make the STAR sign slightly more 'centered' in its spot.
