This stunning Budweiser sign dates from the 1930’s and is extremely rare, principally because the logo incorporates a winged motif. Trivia fans might be interested to note that a well established restaurant chain called ‘Steak and Shake’ took Budweiser to court claiming that the winged shape breached their copyright. The restaurant’s court victory resulted in Budweiser having to modify the design of their logo, and this is why the wings only appear on much older vending machines, signs and memorabilia.
The sign measures a considerable 6ft x 3ft and can either be hung or simply bolted to the wall. It has undergone a thorough restoration which includes being adapted to a UK power supply, and has of course been safety checked. It will be apparent from the photos above that, unlike many neon signs, this one also looks pretty cool when not illuminated!
This is a real beauty and needs to be seen to be truly appreciated so why not come on down and see it first hand? It’ll light up your life!
