Advertising Sign for Bus Line - The Gray Line

Recommended Posts

I am told that this sign is original, not refurbished, not a reproduction.  A stack of these were found, somewhere, each individually wrapped in some sort of brown paper.  It isn't flawless - there is one small area of chipped paint.  

 

I want it for wall art, not gonna sell it, so maybe it doesn't matter whether or not it's original or not, but, I'd like some opinions as to its authenticity.  I've done some internet surfing, trying to find if reproductions are available - I've had no luck so far.  There was an original one like this on Ebay a week or so ago, but it's now gone.

With no makers markings or dating marks my guess is reproduction.  It could be from an old stock of reproductions that were made in the 1980-1990s when stuff like this was everywhere.

Is it porcelain or painted?

It is painted, or at least, I think it is.

The one that sold on eBay was reported as  porcelain but looked identical to yours.  I suspect it is from the same "find"  It is going to look nice on the wall so who cares.  Enjoy it
