This is a 1914 Betty sign. It is early chromolithograph on a masonite type of substrate. The rarest thing about it is that it still has the original frame. Most of the frames were used long ago for other things, when the sign was discarded. It hung in a cigar shop, pharmacy, or mom and pop grocery.
The photo next to it shows how it was used in a cigar store. I bought it at an auction a few years ago. I also have the little black sign that is hanging on the fountain head. Hope you enjoy.
