Original National Bohemian Metal /Glass Vintage Sign
Gorgeous, circa 1950 reverse painted glass illuminated sign. Condition is excellent but the glass itself was cracked and has been re-glued. But serious thanks to the quality of manufacture of the ad panel and metal case. A very tough sign and one never to be upgraded. Referred to as a Glow sign. The Gill Glass Company (Gillco) and Central Lighting and Fixture Company were one and the same. Gill Glass employed the glass artists of the company and Central Lighting and Fixture employed the folks that designed and fabricated the fixture portion of the lights, chandeliers, wall sconce etc. So in the case of this National Bohemian Back Bar Light – Gill Glass fired the 14″ ROG advertising lens and Central Lighting and Fixture fabricated the metal cabinet that holds the 14″ ROG advertising lens. About 15 x 3 inches.
