Hello! Thanks for letting me in this wonderful group!! I got this sign today. What’s the age? Sadly it’s cut. Not sure of a value
That's a real shame it was cut, but I imagine it'll still have some decent value since it's a sign for a smaller bottler which actually depicts the bottle. Is it enamel or painted tin? As for age I'd guess 30s-40s based on the bottle, maybe 50s at the late end since that's when most bottlers were phasing out deco bottles.
it looks painted. Not sure to be honest. I wish they didn’t cut the extra 5” but it was really cheap and my wife is named Brandy. So it kinda fits the shop.I was assuming 30s ish. Honestly I paid $30 for it. I got a few bottles I need to post on here. I normally collect gas and oil but I’m starting to like the bottles now!
Usually cut to make a repair. For example... often in a roof to fix a hole.I googled brandimist and that bottle comes up as being from the late 20's > 30's , so I would imagine the sign is from same time period
its weird they cut off the bottom , maybe it was damaged or store made a custom alteration to fit there display /building
Yeah what Robby said makes sense, during the depression era anything you can find to make repairs. The bottle pictured is 1920's-it was their earlier deco style bottle. My bottle pictured is a little later with more detail in the embossing of the barrel late 20's early 30's.Usually cut to make a repair. For example... often in a roof to fix a hole.
Now THATS cool. Thanks! Would anyone take a stab at a value? If I was to assume I’d say $100 maybe? It’s a neat sign. Does anyone clean these up or leave them be? I’ll have to find a bottle for it now!!
