At least I've never seen them. Couldnt find any info on them either, aside from the company info related back to United Motors before GM bought them. I love the duo and was happy to get them. I'd like ot just find out a little about them year etc? They are double sided.

Neat signs...the bearings sign uses a nice Art Deco font that I would date to the mid-30's myself.

I would say mid 30's also; attached is a catalog insert for the Bearings showing 1934 through 1941.
