This is a beautiful, antique, cast-iron "EXIT" sign, salvaged from a recently-remodeled movie theater on the East Coast. The sign, dating from the theater's glory days in the 1930's, is an art deco tour de force - you could live ten lifetimes and never see another gem like this one! The front, which has long since been painted over (quite competently) in red, black, and gold, features a variety of familiar motifs, cast into the heavy metal of the backplate as well as the frontpiece, which serves as protection for the light bulb.The bulb seems to be original (or at the very least quite old), as are the insulated wires protruding from the side, meant to be hard-wired into the wall. None of the metal is cracked, broken, or chipped, and all of the original nuts and bolts are intact. This is an incredible piece of art deco history, in absolutely amazing condition for its age.
The overall size is approximately 12 inches wide X 9 inches high X 2 inches deep, and the overall condition is VERY GOOD. Otherwise, I would never think of parting with it.
