Flange Signs

Flange signs offer two sides of the same story you might say since they are made to attach to a building or post by a Flange that allows for one sign to be seen from both sides, more eyes for the vintage advertising dollar!

Today I feel a little “tired” so I bring you the best example of the classic Fisk tires mascot who is ready to “re-tire” just as soon as that tire is Fixed or replaced!

Firestone tires also produced many signs in tin, porcelain and plastic. This is a very nice example of a porcelain over metal Flange sign that would let motorists know they could purchase Firestone products inside the shop where this was displayed.
