Municipal Signs

Porcelain Municipal signs played an important role in the 1940’s and 50’s. Signs that were used to mark the borders of officially designated towns that also included information of when the town was incorporated and even the population. Municipal signs have upon them what the town council designed. Municipal signs were among some of the most beautiful of all porcelain signs. For example, The City of Anchorage showed in the center a beautiful blue boat anchor, The City of Hueneme showed a lighthouse accompanied by a curse ship, The City of Roseville reveals roses in the center of their sign, and so on. Although these signs are scarce, they’re very collectible and can be quite expensive.
