Double-Sided Neon Eat Sign, circa 1930s

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Once in a blue moon we come across a neon sign with unique, streamline character and we get very excited. This holy grail of vintage signs proudly advertises EAT for the no-nonsense blue-collar joe, instantly evoking an entire vanished era in that one brief word. This sign is all original but for the tubes-finish 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. We estimate it dates from the mid to late 1930s. Two steel brackets emerge from the top of the metal can and two more from the side, so that this sign can hang from a cross bar, mount off a wall or stand on a ledge.
