Zinc Cafe Light Up Overhead Sidewalk Sign
Have a cool coffee shop? Great early light up double sided zinc sign. One of the earliest styles of lit signs. Illuminated by 4 bulbs in the bottom of the can. Zinc letters cut and folded to reflect the light.
Painted with reflective smaltz. Smaltz is a coarse, colored, crushed or powdered glass or sand. The typical application is to apply a paint that is the same color as the smaltz to the background of the sign, and then select a binder to hold the smaltz in place. Once the binder is applied, smaltz is added and allowed to dry.
Excellent, original as found. I added 2 light bulbs and electrical cord. Easy to hang and light (AC 2-prong plug).
49" x 19" x 7". Weighs only 25 lbs.
