American 1940s Martini Glass Trade Sign

Swingin’ 1940′s martini glass trade sign from a cocktail lounge in Denver. What an impact when illuminated!  Great displayed up high or on the floor as a cocktail table. Wonderful original blue paint surface.

“Along with helium, xenon and krypton, neon was first extracted from the air in the late 1890s. Sir William Ramsay and Morris Travers discovered a category of gases missing from the periodic table and the Greek names they assigned to these elements paid tribute to their occult source. Helium refers to the sun, in whose chromosphere it was traced; xenon means strange (as in xenophobia, which warns against foreigners); and krypton implies that the gas is cryptic, in need of decoding. Neon simply identifies something new, enigmatic and unclassifiable.” Guardian U.K. 

Price $10,500. Condition Expected patina from use as a trade sign. Very stable and substantial. Has been rewired by an electrician. Two sockets near the base do not work.
Measurements: height: 36 in/depth: 13 Base/width/length: 31 Top

Materials/Techniques: Sheet metal and iron.

“I think furnishings (the majority anyway), should be timeless, so I tend to lean toward traditionally appointed interiors; and furnishings should always be the best quality one can afford.” – DLM.
