Hi, I did a search on this barn find bottle and could not find any photos of anything even close to this. I'm guessing it's rare, but not sure. Any info would be great. Thanks! New to the forum, sorry my previous post photo was unavailable.
Up For Sale...an original vintage porcelain Railroad Express Agency sign with original grommets. This is the “real deal”...not a reproduction. It measures 8 “ by 8 “. The Railroad Express Agency was created during WW1 to expedite railroad shipping and cut through red tape that would slow down supplies getting to our troops in Europe. Like an olden day Fedex or UPS...but railway!
There is an unusual story to this particular sign. I found it bolted to the back of another exact sign. Two things happened. First, the two bolts caused rubbing and porcelain loss. But secondly, being covered by the top sign preserved the color and brilliance of the original porcelain of this sign.
$65 plus $10 shipping. Buyer pays PayPal fees. Thanks!
My opinion on the lubester, this a tough one. For me, it's like just rough enough to restore in my opinion. But then again.... If there was/is a way to restore the roughness out of it yet keep it say 85% original, I would vote for that.
5’x30” embossed painted Koolmotor. It’s a bit larger than that but once a frame is put behind it, that’s what it’ll measure. The flanges have been folded flat. I wiped it down with windex. $550 and add shipping.
A friend of mine picked these up for me a while back thinking they'd be something I'd like since I collect gas and oil stuff. However, they're not really my style and don't fit with the type of stuff I have, but I bought them from him anyways as his intentions were good. I'd like to offer them for sale here to anyone who'd be interested for what I'm into them for. I'll do $85 shipped anywhere in the lower 48 for all of them. Don't really want to split them up unless at least 2 are spoken for. Let me know if you want any more pics or details. Thanks,
