Thanks i appreciate the response.
That's what we thought it was too especially with the "patina" and purchased it as a porcelain sign but then it somewhat scratches easily.


So would you say they did not make any metal signs ??

what you have there is a porcelain sign - of this oval version I'm not aware they ever made a tin version,
they did make tin signs advertising united motors -
haven't seen too many of the 5' & 6' oval versions .. ... cool

I have this one, I think there are 4 other signs that are more graphic like this for other services they provided. This one is 45" X 25" tin with a metal frame.
