Picked this Magnolia Sign up recently and was hoping you guys can enlighten me on its history? The colors have me stumped and I cant place an age range? Makers mark is Veribite Signs-Chicago, but that is the only markings on the front or back of the sign. Actual sign measurements are 118"x22", heavy sign w/ great gloss and thick shelving. Sign is arrow straight with the few chips pictured. Estimates on approximate value would be great as well, I can find no comparibles online.

Any help/info is much appreciated.

That is very cool, sort of resembles those Sinclair signs similar to that. Great piece!

I don't have a pic of my 2 piece, it's in storage now. But it bolts in the middle of the "N" and is prob 12 feet long roughly.

It is not a bulk plant sign either but the canopy sign Magnolia used at their stations. They also used a self framed red and white version after this one...

Very close to the Sinclair strip signs but cooler imo

Yea I had seen the Red & white version before, but never this one. Interesting to know this one pre-dates it. Agreed on the Sinclair comparison, these are cooler and more unique..... Appreciate the info
