Giant Lighted Flashing Star Sign, circa 1955

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Your house will be the brightest on the block when adorned with this Classic 4-foot tall lighted star. Originally, it would have decorated the entrance to a carnival or park ground, but we can easily imagine it on the roof of Clark Griswold's well-lit holiday home.

In addition to the heart-warming trip down memory Lane provided by this glowing star, please note that it features an adjustable knob, allowing you to slow or quicken the speed of the bulbs flashing. The sign also hosts perfectly worn and weathered yellow and red paint. The canister of the sign is in very good condition, with the few dent and bumps only adding to its character. We have completely restored the wiring of the sign, even adding a new 8' black nylon cord. The sign mounts via two matching flanges, which can be screwed to any surface: wall, ceiling, roof or shelf. This sign will shine brightly for many more years to come.
