"The Southern Railroad came along in the late 1800's as a result of shorter lines joining, the largest being the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia..Porcelain enameled signs have been said to be a true reflection of the times. When used for advertising, the signs gave a brilliant permanence to the product. Today, these advertising signs are a wonderful collectible art form".
We are pleased to offer you this beautiful authentic reproduction of a Southern Railroad vintage logo advertising sign.
This 10" diameter enameled sign is created using the same process popularized in the early 1900's. The colors are not applied as paint, instead they are finely ground glass crystals which, when kiln fired at 1350 degrees F, fuse to a heavy steel plate. Each color is applied and fired separately, creating a durable, lustrous and rust resistant product. The resulting high quality and excellent craftsmanship assures this item will also make the perfect Christmas or Hanukkah gift for that special Train or Railroad enthusiasts as well as Railroadiana memorabilia collectors!
