old NYC sign

    Newer Older

    Certainly the gem of my little sign collection, this is a pre-war porcelain street sign from Greenwich Village. The mounting hardware, although of the correct vintage, is not original to the sign; it came from a street corner in Easton, PA.

      My mother grew up in Greenwich Village right on MacDougal Street near Washington Square Park and I have been looking for ages for an antique porcelain street sign from greenwich. I was wondering if you were at all interested in parting with it?

      I have no plans to sell now, but if that ever needs to happen, I will definitely keep you in mind.

      NYC porcelain humpback signs are abundant, though it is obviously tough to find any specific one. I found this one on eBay roughly 5 years ago. Took me a few more years to find the right mounting hardware. It's the only NYC sign I have, and I feel it's one of the best ones I could have found. :)
