Vintage Electrical Contractor's advertising sign from 1910-20s, from the early years of indoor electricity use. Beautiful wavy glass reverse-painted with gold leaf edging on the letters. Originally made to be lit up from the inside ; you can see in one picture where the conduit pipe would attach (it could be electrified again). Measures: 36" wide x 4" deep x 27" H. Fun to hang it "Loft Style" from the ceiling to show both the front and the back.
This early sign is a fantastic example of reverse painted glass signage. The gilded letters are hand-painted to look three dimensional.
