1955 Bunny Bread Embossed Vertical Tin Self Framed Sign

Description

Still available today, Bunny Bread was started in 1925 when three brothers took out a $300 mortgage on their mother’s house to open a bakery in a southern Illinois cabin. This beautiful sign would have hung outside your local general store to let customers know that their favorite bread was available inside. This sign measures fifty-four inches tall by eighteen inches wide and has some amazing colors on it. It has had some touchups over the years – top edge (both red and yellow), in between the ears of the bunny’s head, on the bunny’s cheek to the left of his mouth, just above the right middle mounting hole, at the bottom of the ‘B’ in Bunny, and various spots on the sides. The mounting holes have some small chips around them, along with a few chips at the bottom of the sign. From about the middle part of the sign down it has some minor dents on each side. It is marked “American Bakers Cooperative, Inc. 6-9-55” in the lower left and “Stout Sign Co. St. Louis, Mo.” in the lower right. This is an oversized shippable item. Please contact us for shipping info. 19152-WUPP
