Perfectly Aged Lighted Carnival Arrow, circa 1950

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Step right up and bask in the glow of this remarkable carnival arrow sign! Two-sided and two-toned, this lighted sign has been fully restored and now features 110 flickering bulbs (55 on either side), powered by a flicker motor that causes the lights to pulse in waves along the arrow. The patina in the canister of this sign is the stuff dreams are made of – many try to replicate such perfect wear, but true character only comes from decades of use and love.
This sign hangs from two eye hooks at the back and two steel arms at the front. All of the wiring has been tested in our UL-compatible restoration shop and a new 8' black nylon cord has been added. A switch on the belly of the arrow turns the sign on and off with ease.

Ships by Truck and is delivered to your front door. 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.

Condition notes: While there is wear and rust in the body of the canister, it is still solid. The wiring has been checked and restored where needed.
