Vintage 40's Lighted Glass Exit Sign, Galvanized Metal - Wall Mount Wedge-Shaped. Large Vintage Double-Sided Wall Mount Wedge-Shaped Illuminated Glass Exit Sign.A salvage piece from a commercial building, we estimate this dates 1940's. Please note there is reflective glare on the glass in several of the photos due to the lighting.
Designed to mount flush against the wall, overall it measures 7" high x 11.25" long on each side including the back side that would mount to the wall. The front facing section that divides the two glass panels is about 1 wide, has a spot of surface wear to the finish and as can be seen, one of the two screws is missing although this is solid and very stable as it is. A pressed and folded galvanized steel "can" housing having minor touches of surface wear including some tiny paint spatters... The original white glass insets having oversized green lettering with a touch of wear including a slight scratch as can be seen in the photos. There are no chips or cracks.
Inside are two porcelain incandescent bulb sockets which appear to be in very good condition. In the past this was rewired as can be seen with a polarized plug and an extra long 14-1/2' (174) long cord allowing this to be plugged directly into a wall outlet but of course this can be hardwired to the wall for permanent installation if preferred. This rewire looks very good with no breaks in the cord but check it yourself before use. As found from an estate, this originally had one very old green bulb inside which we replaced with a new single green bulb of course a second bulb could be added to the second socket inside.Be sure to visit our Auctions and Store.
