New user. I'm younger mainly collect license plates. My only other experience with porcelain advertising is Ande Rooney (I know I will not be popular for this take) which so far I have enjoyed in my garage. I purchased a B.L tobacco sign at a garage sale this weekend. I cannot find any information on the company or replications of the sign anywhere. I didn't pay much for the sign but I was willing to take a chance. I have attached front side and back side pictures. I have no interest in keeping an India fake or the likes - I was wondering if any of the experts here had any opinion if the sign I purchased has a prayer's shot of being authentic. From what I can tell, any sign mirroring mine began as a square with a red border. The seller mentioned he thought the sign I purchased might have been cut out, at least the top portion notched is evident of that occurring. Please go easy on me, from what I can tell fakes and Ande Rooney are both not well regarded here. Since I am local to Peotone I attended the 2022 advertising show for the first time and I was blown away at what people were charging for a sign the size of this B.L. tobacco I feel like it would be priced at $500+. I just want to know if I can display this with pride in my garage or if I should look to get rid of it.
Thanks in advance.
