  1. Safe travel. Happy Holidays!
  2. bb2 quitchyerbitchin and go make a snow angel !!! ;0)
  3. Drinking cup for sure. Dilution is typically required for medicinal liquid dosing, including those of the herbal and apothecarial variety. The stuff tastes terrible, usually bitter. So alcoholic sp...
  5. Thanks CK!
  6. Me neither Perry, "before our time". Seller claimed it was found in a barn next to an old tractor. Doesn't look like it was used much, only slightly faded. Still has the delicate strings attached, ...
  7. Thank you Mani and Bernie, still enjoy the collecting and viewing your wonderful posts as well. Take care over the holiday.
  8. Thanks Henry, I appreciate it!
  9. Thank you Michael!
  10. Lookin' good Bern!
  11. They don't make 'em like that anymore. Looks fantastic.
  12. Wonderful sign and always nice to spend less than expected. It's a beauty CK!
  13. International pieces are a challenge to identify sometimes, typically there isn't a lot of documentation on them, especially decorative items like your beautiful bench. The center back sign is the dy...
  14. Great '56 sign Bernie, super snag! Can't go wrong with the old authentic die cut bottle signs. They are among my favorites.
  15. It's a nice one, not as common as some of the others from the 50's. The bottle cap shaped image sets it apart.
  16. I was mildly surprised that calendar insert went so high, must be a rare one. I was watching! I love the image and slogan on yours. 1941, nice.
  17. That'll frame up nice Bernie!
  18. c. 1950. The face damage hurts value considerably. Generally speaking: If it keeps time, lights up, runs quiet, right around 2. If not, 1 as a parts clock. If it was perfect, 4 maybe 5.
  19. That's a very nice sign Mr. Bernie, super snag.
  20. Not hard to imagine you cruising down the road with a couple new old porcelain signs thrown in the bed! Great Ride Michael.
  21. has a great reference for this:
  22. Looks nice Bernie, well done!
  23. Hi thanks Trey, I know you like the big signs too.
  24. Yes Scott is correct. These 70's fantasy items are well known and easily recognized by collectors.
  25. Thanks Coke1234, yes I wish the good deals were more common. Some of the prices on signs these days, well I just keep on scrolling right. Perry, I'll take that moniker as a compliment!!! :0)
  26. Thanks Bernie!
  27. LOL Perry I try not to let spending too little bother me! ;0) Michael, Thank you, I know you appreciate the nice signs.
  28. Thank you Perry! Yes I wonder about the sign. It couldn't have hung outside very long, if at all. The print registration marks may indicate it's a press proof, first off a run. And it has the inve...
  29. Great lighted signage Perry!
  30. Wonderful historical correspondence! Lucky it found you to be saved.
  31. Gotta be a tough one to find Michael. Beautiful. Congrats!
  32. Here's another from that set:
  33. It's one of a coaster set made in the 1980's, not a tip tray.
  34. Nice to see you're still finding the great deals spriteboy, very nice trays.
  35. I felt the same way boyd, looked so good... but still not quite right. These "Bierman" versions still show up from time to time. Price tags still big too!
  36. That's the sign maker's production code. Allen-Morrison December 1958.
  37. Nice small Perry!
  38. Yes that's a good tip oktd, the trademark detail can definitely be a tip off. G99 - 6 years ago when I posted this seems quaint now. Many collectors won't even touch the porcelain signs now. It's...
  39. Hope my note made it through OK.
  40. hi jgn yes send me an e-mail at and I'll reply with the info and images.
  41. Thanks G99, I agree. I figured this was my one good shot at owning a salesman sample cooler so I took it. Like you, I've looked at a number of them before and felt squeamish. Got lucky. Keep up th...
  42. Thank you Trey, still enjoying it very much. Hope all is good with you.
  43. The guide lists as "scarce", which is defined as: A collector might encounter this item in the marketplace from once to a few times a year. Most commonly found at private sales, live auctions, or co...
  44. 1942, it read "Coke time" at the top.
  45. The circle R trademark detail is from 1990 or later, and that odd logo style was never used on old signs of any type, so this would be a contemporary reproduction or fantasy sign. It's a nice decorat...
  46. Sweet banks Perry!
  47. "Nice Rides" and looks like a lot of fun !
  49. No we're not supposed to. Factors impacting value are age, condition, size, rarity. It's hard to tell condition from the images. Bottom looks warped some, corners bent. But overall it's excellent....
  50. Listed in Petretti's 12th guide as 20"x36", rare. Has a good bit of value even with the edge/corner damage (nice sweet spot).
