1940s Lilly Pharmacy Drug Store Reverse Painted Sign
$225.00

Offered is a delightful 1940s era reverse painted pharmacy sign. This wood framed drug store sign measures 22.5 inches long x 14.5 inches wide.

Quite visually appealing, the sign is in very nice condition with minor paint loss with flaking on the left side. There is some lightening on the finish as well but it is not obtrusive. The photos actually enhance this effect which is much less obvious when viewed "in person". This paint issue on the left side is best appreciated in the last photo.

Eli Lilly was a proud manufacturer of proprietary medicines for over a century and often provided signage to drug store owners to both assist in promoting these local pharmacies as well as to advertise their own products.
