It's always nice when a sign is received and hangs as nicely as imagined (or maybe even better). Such is the case with this canvas bottler's banner which delivered today. I purchased from a Connecticut seller, ala BIN request, after his bid auction did not reach reserve price. Brought her home for a C-note less than reserve. Seller advertised this as a 40's sign which hung over a drugstore entrance out east. It has no trade mark detail, nor maker's mark, which caused me to do extensive research, with little luck. Only after running it by our trusty experts TGBWC and earlycoke did I feel comfortable pulling the trigger. Glad I did. The banner provides a nice visual break at the 1/2 way point of our very long ranch basement. I probably will never know exact age, but that's OK. It's unique and looks great to me.
Hope everybody has a nice weekend.
