Rod,
Are there any names or dates to this sign? How thick is the glass?
Hope it's a fun job.

It appears to be thicker than 1/4"

no, wait

What did i order,oh ya it was 1/4"

Glad you guy's thought it might be an original antique.That's the look I'm going for. The client wanted it to look 100 years old.

Rod,
Well, ya got me. But to be fair, I couldn't smell the fresh paint from the photo of your "Antique glass Sign". lol :?
You did a good job on the design, looks like it could have been duplicated from a Shorpy photo. I like it.
