EXCELLENT CONDITION NO RESERVE!! HAND MADE ALUMINUM WELDED SIGN WITH LETTERS SPELLING OUT: THE DESERT INN. WE ACQUIRED THIS FROM A PRIVATE HOME IN PALM SPRINGS SO WE ARE ASSUMING IT WAS ONCE ASSOCIATED WITH THE LEGENDARY: THE DESERT IN MOTEL/HOTEL WHICH WAS LOCATED ON PALM CANYON DRIVE FROM 1909-1967. THIS ALUMINUM SIGN MEASURES 18 1/2" by 47 1/2" by 1/2" THICK. THERE ARE TWO HOLES ON THE BOTTOM FOR SOME TYPE OF MOUNTING PURPOSES? OPEN FREE FORM LETTERING IS A BIT DIFFICULT TO READ SO WE PHOTOGRAPHED IT AGAINST A DARK BLUE BACKDROP. SILVER ALUMINUM IN COLOR COULD EASILY BE PAINTED IF WANTED. AGE AND HISTORY ARE TOTALLY UNKNOWN TO US WITH THIS PIECE. THE PRIVATE HOME WE ACQUIRED IT FROM HAD NO HISTORY TO PASS ON. STATED THAT THEY HAD IT FOR SOME TIME AND SHE DID NOT KNOW WHERE HER HUSBAND HAD GOTTEN IT FROM. ALL PICTURES SHOW CONDITION WELL. NO CHIPS, NO CRACKS, NO REPAIRS!!!
PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. THANKS!
