Vintage Danger Metal Sign from 1950s | Chicago History
Here we have a vintage metal Danger sign from mid-century Chicago industrial area. It's a dangerous world out there, especially when the poles are swinging on the turns....(ahem). This bad boy is oozing with authenticity, and the reality of the elements are evident. Love the red and white dichotomy, all perfectly sprinkled with rust. Man cave to a "T."
The rare danger sign came out of a Chicago estate. I was told it was likely used in the 1940s or 50s.
The unusual sign measures 16" tall by 20" wide. As stated above, there is patina everywhere, both front and back. The metal is warped a bit, so it doesn't lay flat (see pics). However, the way it hangs in the shop always gets a comment. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes). Free shipping on the rare Chicago danger sign.
