Don't know much about it. I bought this in Germany. Do You have any idea where it comes from? And ofcourse the value, date of making? Could not find anything of this on the internet.

    Hi BernaroDa...........Take a look at the 'Butter Krust" sign that was posted to Show & Tell. You have the same issue. If you need additional follow up, please write..........I'd love to tell you more...................Mike Bruner

    Purdue Creamery was built on the Purdue campus in 1914 and closed in 1969, so your sign could be from any time in between. There was recently a similar sign on ebay. The seller indicated he found it on a salvage barge in India.
    I collect Purdue memarobelia and Purdue Creamery items, and had never seen a sign until this year, and I've seen three in the past 3 months. Yours, one at an auction and the one on eBay.

    Hi BernaroDa...........Unfortunately, this piece has a lineage that goes back about two years. I really do not know where it 'came from', but I'd love to know, as I have an attorney on stand-by waiting to dig into the manufacturer of this sign and other fantasy pieces that have used my copyright protected images to profit. The value is certainly up to the buyer, but I would give it about a $10 bill. Mike Bruner
