Sign is 15″ x 32″ and weighs 6 lbs. 10 oz. layered porcelain on thick die cut domed Iron, chipping around holes and around edges, good shape in the field, if dropped on the edge any sign will get damaged but in the field porcelain is strong and will hold up to just dropping them, I dropped one on jagged concrete steps face down and barely scratched it, hammer or bullet it would take to damage it not sure if a 22 cal. would penetrate iron. picks are good so look it over and any ? please ask! From the 1880s until the 1950s, one of the most dominant forms of outdoor advertising signage was durable, weather-resistant porcelain. Originating in Germany and imported to the United States in the 1890s, porcelain signs, also known as enamel signs or porcelain enamel signs, featured layers of powdered glass that were painstakingly fused, color by color, onto a base of heavy rolled iron, which itself would be die cut into any number of shapes.
