$550

About

A great original vintage porcelain over metal sign reading "No Smoking" and dates from the 1940s. Was hung up in a bar, restaurant, gas/service station or store. Would go great in any hotel, bar or restaurant. The original vintage sign is missing a couple copper eyelets. Has a couple chips to the porcelain as seen in the photos. No creases or folds. The color is great and in overall nice condition for its age. Measures: approx. 24" wide by 4" tall.
