1930s Occult and Mystic Shop Signs, Set of Two


We aren’t sure who N. Colangelo was, but it appears that he was a musician with a penchant for the metaphysical. This pair of signs has a late 30’s vintage and features hand-painted glass panels. The subject matter here is not just esoteric, but enchantingly unique. We can see that this music and radio shop also happened to be a meeting a place for the ancient order of Rosicrucians as well as a book shop/library for occult materials. You can’t help but be bewitched by these great advertising relics. Aurora Mills is not responsible for any magical happenings that may occur after your purchase.
