I just picked this from Missouri on a roundtrip from SC. The Corneli company I believe was bought out or closed in the 1960's. They were a supplier of seed to the midwest often found in the early 20th century. By the 1950's their main business was soybean and corn seed.
The sign itself is made of the very thin bright tin common to the 1930's-50's that had the dimples to make it flashy when hit by light.
That's a reproduction vacuum formed plastic one that we sell here in Australia. Manufactured locally too. Used a couple over the years and stock them from time to time. Had spent some time looking into glass and after acquiring an original mould, we've recreated it in glass to a better finish. This is version one - opal glass to come next
This is a Montgomery Ward Auto Service Center “Tire” Sign from the 1960's. . This good condition, wall-hanging sign was designed to sell front end parts in the service center.
It has four different three-dimensional tires (plastic) to illustrate tire wear for the customer, and suggest the service and parts remedy needed. Very colorful, and good-sized. The sign measures 36” by 34-1/2”. I’ve never seen another one of these. I purchased it from off the wall at our local Montgomery Ward Auto Service Center, when they were going out of business in the late 1970’s. Of all the signs on display in my man cave, this is the one almost every visitor will go look at. Something about the 3-D tires draws them in. Go figure!
This never-used, vacuum-formed TRICO Winter Wipers sign is from the 1960’s. It’s in great condition, and is super colorful. It was manufactured with a three-dimensional look, so it’s very distinctive.
The sign is good-sized, measuring 20-1/2” high by 14” wide. It is designed to hang on the wall, although I have it taped to a display board at this time for easy transportation. The blue masking tape can easily be removed. I purchased this NOS sign from the basement of my friendly local old time auto parts store in the late 1970’s. It's in excellent condition. The price is $235, plus the shipping.
This is a very good condition, advertising thermometer from Hall Garage Corp. in Wausau, Wisconsin. This wooden thermometer promotes Dodge and Plymouth cars, as well as Dodge Job-Rated Trucks. I would date this piece to the late 1930's.
This thermometer works fine, and measures 10" high by 2-1/8" wide by 3/8" thick. It has the neat-looking metal shield, protecting the thermometer glass tube ball.
