Thur Ray permanent wave beauty shop sign, Raymond Industries, St. Paul. Allegedly produced in limited numbers and "loaned" to exclusive shops with an official Raymond Laboratories product license.
Back-lighted, behind flocked reverse-etched cobalt-mirrored face. Cast aluminum bas-relief attached figural ladies head, with cool illuminated "halo" pattern on glass underneath. Aluminum banding, lacquered blue and black base, crinkle painted metal back case. Signed, as pictured.
Totally original, other than external cord extension. Very good condition.
Round face of sign is 16" diameter overall, including aluminum trim. Base adds approximately 1.25" to overall height, as face is inset.
It is beautiful in daylight and amazing lighted in the dark. A true "statement" advertising piece. less
