This original, retro Louis Sherry ice cream advertising sign has the original labels on the back. It says "Parneon" on the top, (see photos), which gives the sign a 3-D effect. The raspberry/burgundy colors with the white letters and the beautiful floral scroll design is very good condition and it makes this sign pop with color.
The outside of the frame is brass with two brass hinges on the back, which are also original to the piece. The cord is in very good condition with no frayed or loose wires. There is a pull chain in the back for turning the light on and off.
There are two hooks on each side for hanging. The green felt on the bottom can easily be removed. The glass and frame is in very good condition and is truly a great one of a kind conversation piece. A few pictures do show reflective shadows and two pics were taken in a dark room, with the light on, so you may see the brilliance of the colors in this sign.
