here is my non petro, did some research and gridley ice cream it was a milwaukee based company ,which i think started in or around 1906. dont know the exact age of this neon but i would guess 50s. has a nice art deco look. i put a new back glass on it and a new transformer and it lit up like a christmas tree.

Nice neon Tim. I don't know much about neon signs, but if I saw that in a shop I would guess it was from the very early 1940's or before with that deco font and design. Black, red, and chrome was a standard 1930's color combination.
