Sign of some kind . Can anyone tell what it is ?

Recommended Posts

Dealer ( Auto - Motorcycle - Truck - Tire ) building sign. Probably around 100 yrs. old. Would be a statement piece outside any museum or car-truck or gas-n-oil display. Don't know what brand it was , someone said REO , Harley, or ?? even Indy 500. Believe it's concrete so very heavy. Local pickup or you pay shipping ( Already on pallet )

Wonder what size it is.  Big enough for a pallet might make it a super heavy item.  I've seen similar before and believe it's probably a generic symbol used in a dealership, garage, etc. rather than representing any particular brand of automobile. Would love to see the rest of the building or maybe have an address so it could be researched to see what the building was used for.    It would indeed be a standout addition to a collection of automobilia-if you had a place to put it and a wall strong enough to support it.   Wouldn't it be great to find some smaller pieces like that done in a lighter material (plaster) that guys with wood walls could display.

Am I the only one who finds it odd that his ad has a photo of it on the building but yet he doesn't know what building it came off of AND he doesn't even provide a photo of the actual piece? 

 

Kelsey and Motor Wheels buildings had similar items on the exterior of the original buildings...

There is a old Ford dealership building in Columbus, Nebraska that has the same type of decor in several places.   I believe it was a building gargoil of type that was used in archateture of the early 20s period.
