This is a wonderful vintage original letter from 1940’s neon store marquee display sign. It is tin metal and measures 14 1/4″ x 9″ x 4 1/4″. These pieces make great decorative wall shelves for items or shadow boxes. Some of the letters still have neon glass in them, they do not work. They are rustic aged and look awesome! I have total of 30+ letters. The neon sign is an evolution of the earlier Geissler tube, which is an electrified glass tube containing a “rarefied” gas (the gas pressure in the tube is well below atmospheric pressure). When a voltage is applied to electrodes inserted through the glass, an electrical glow discharge results.
