About

The Ross Johnson Drug Co Est.1924… This impressive mortar and pestle leaded glass sign is almost four foot tall with a two foot diameter. The red curved glass panels are reverse painted with frosted letters. The center has impressive sink work with multicolored cut-glass jewels. The rest is pebbled glass in a variety of shades from light cream to amber. All the interior lighting has been restored and uses 12 bulbs. The pressed steel bottom panel unscrews to change the bulbs. The inside top is reinforced with a welded steel frame and an open mesh that allows the pestle to be lit. We have this in the shop window and it stops traffic.
