Double-Sided Neon Drug Store Sign, circa 1955

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

It's easy to imagine this double-sided beauty mounted at the entrance to a busy city drug store. The heavy-duty steel arms make it easy to mount this to a beam or directly to the ceiling, but we think it makes quite a statement perched on a counter or mantle, as well.

The original paint and construction are all in place, but we've restored the neon to full glory so that it will glow for many more years to come. Outfitted with a new 8' long black plastic cord.

This piece ships by Truck delivery. Upon placing your order you will be contacted by a customer service associate to discuss delivery time and details as they pertain to this one of a kind item. Delivery surcharges apply.
