If you are a Vintage sign collector, or fan of Porcelain Neon figural signs, this is one of the better looking pieces we have been fortunate enough to own. Its a beautiful 6 color porcelain sign.
It measures an impressive 8ft long and 6ft tall. Features some original neon, some replacement pieces and some that we need to fix for the sale. It is an original single sided piece and was originally a wall hanging sign just as it currently is.Original can is excellent and free of wear and porcelain is nearly perfect with only the one chip to the Sombrero. The color and condition of this piece is just unheard of in the sign collecting world. Typically a piece like this would be faded or rusty. Its just amazing, what you are seeing is actually the sign with 50 years of dust still on it. It will be entirely cleaned and detailed once the neon is off for repair.
Neon its currently missing is the full border... That is Neon Green, and the EL CHICO text in Neon blue. DS in the bottom will be matched in Neon Pink. This is the sign from the original El Chico's in Dallas Texas.In later years the Franchised restaurants would use the same graphic on a tin sign. This is the original and earlier Porcelain beautiful sign that started it all! We are very proud to offer such a beautiful and graphic piece of Texas and El Chico history. Any questions about this beauty, please feel free to ask. See our other listings for more amazing pieces of advertising history.
