Southern Medallion


I found this sign at a flea market mall.  It’s 8.75″ in diameter, baked enamel finish and 10.75 ounces in weight. It has been dinged a bit and I’m not under any illusion that it’s an antique. I believe the company that produced these signs is no longer making them.  “Too expensive”, I read.

I’m not having any luck finding a similar sign yet.  I may have to (alert! 1960s TV series reference) “Wire Paladin, San Francisco”.

    “Tennessee” is misspelled as “Tennesse” on your main heading.

    Seriously, thank you! Orthography is a big deal with me, but sometimes I just won’t see an error. It’s been corrected. Gold Star!

    You’re very welcome. I’m a natural editor. (It’s a curse!)

    Just found your site today. Looking forward to reading more.

      It is a curse, of sorts. Especially if you read ebooks. I would never throw my Kindle across the room, but I’ve been tempted… Thank you for the compliment!

    I’m looking for a double tunnel RR & auto. Side be side. As in double barrel shape it’s long and curved. Can not see end to end. Near Kentucky river or named tributary. SE Ky. Can you help?

      I’ll try. Meanwhile, if anyone else knows this location, jump in!
