VINTAGE IGA STORES PORCELAIN STOREFRONT SIGN HUGE, VERY NICE VIBRANT NICE WOW!
29th March 2017
VINTAGE I.G.A. STORES PORCELAIN SIGN. THESE GROCERY STORES HAD A FANTASTIC STORE FRONT SIGN AND ESPECIALLY THE LOGO! THIS SIGN IS A WHOLE LOTTA PORCELAIN!!!! THE COLORS ARE VIBRANT AND BRIGHT, VERY FEW LITTLE CHIPS ON THE SIGN. EXTREMELY CLEAN AND FOR IT'S AGE. THE EXACT AGE IS UNKNOWN BUT THE SIGN WAS IN FACT ON A STORE FRONT AND THE ONLY DEFECTS THAT I SAW, WAS THAT THERE IS A PERIOD MISSING AFTER THE "I". THERE IS A SMALL AMOUNT OF A RUN OR STAIN NEAR THE "G AND PERIOD" AS SEEN IN THE PHOTOS, BUT NOTHING MAJOR. THE SIGN HAS MOUNTING BRACKETS ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM ALL ALONG IT. IT COMES IN THREE SECTIONS. ONE 59", ONE 61", AND THE LAST AND MIDDLE SECTION IS 72" INCHES FOR A TOTAL LENGTH OF 192" AND IS 24" INCHES TALL AND ABOUT 2 PLUS INCHES THICK. THERE ARE THREE POST/BOLTS THAT SLIDE INTO CORRESPONDING HOLES ON THE END SECTIONS FOR A TIGHT CONNECTION TO EACH OTHER. OBVIOUSLY IT IS QUITE HEAVY AND LOCAL PICK UP IS PREFERRED BUT WILL COOPERATE WITH A SHIPPER BY DELIVERING TO THEM WITHIN REASON LOCALLY. THE SECTIONS CAN BE STACKED WITH PADDING/BLANKETS IN BETWEEN AND SHIPPED ON A PALLET OR CRATE. THIS SIGN IS VERY STUNNING AND IT HAS THE MAKER'S NAME CLEARLY IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER, "BURDICK, CHI". MEANING THE FAMOUS BURDICK SIGN COMPANY OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. THEY WERE A MAJOR PLAYER IN THE SIGN BUSINESS AND IN PARTICULAR PORCELAIN SIGNS. THEY DID INCREDIBLE WORKMANSHIP! I HAVE HANDLED MANY MADE BY THEM. DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS SIGN. THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE, BUT THIS ONE IS REALLY CLEAN AND IN THREE SECTIONS FOR EASY HANDLING. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND READING THIS LONG DESCRIPTION.
