Vintage OK Neon Porcelain Sign: 1950's Chevy Dealership Logo
This vintage OK neon porcelain sign is an original from the 1950s. It is a single sided, lollipop style, working neon sign with a porcelain sign face, and is in remarkable condition for a sign of its age. These signs were used by Chevy dealerships on their used car lots, and are an example of iconic automobile signage from "The Golden Age" of the American open road. It works very well with no buzzing as is common with many of these signs. This lollipop style sign includes the original stand, and is 6 feet tall from the base of the stand to the top of the sign. It is perfect for display in any man cave, game room, or automotive business.

More About The Porcelain Condition
Most of these signs have chips in the porcelain and there is no correct way to add new porcelain in a manor that would be consistent with a full museum quality restoration. Also in the investor collector world there are two schools of thought. One is consistent with ours that it is best and correct to display the wounds, bullet holes etc and age marks, chips etc. on porcelain signs.
The other is to doctor with paint finishes to cover the true condition of the porcelain to make the sign show in pristine condition. This is like putting lipstick on a pig no matter what you do its still a pig. We feel the porcelain sign has much more value in its true condition than it does doctored. However, if you are of the school of thought that your sign should be in pristine condition we offer to do this process at your request.
