I would like to find out if this is what they 1920's Bell sign. It is porecelain on both sides and I found it at an old Hotel in North Dakota. The Hotel was going to be demolished so i took the sign down and it took me all night. The Hotel went down the next morning and no one cared to think of taking it out.
I have had this sign since the 70's and was lost for awhile, but it finally found its way back to me.

Mystery Solved

    There were two types of 21 bell designs used from 1921 to 1939. Your sign is the later 1930's design.
