Why purchase this Embossed Merita Bread Lone Ranger Tin Sign?

Few characters in Americana have endeared themselves to children and the young at heart quite like the Lone Ranger. In 1938, Merita brought the character to the South via radio for the first time. The company sponsored broadcasts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and fans listened religious as they were regaled with stories of how the quintessential good guy won. Eleven years later, the company sponsored The Lone Ranger television show, becoming the first Southern advertiser to do so.

Besides radio and television broadcasts, the company used signs like this one, which it provided to restaurant owners and other venders, to grow awareness of its products. Signs like this one were often used heavily and damaged, but this one still survives in Good - Very Good condition. Finding a sign like this in this condition can be quite difficult, so collectors who wait to order risk missing out on a rare opportunity. The sign weighs about 10 pounds and measures 36" x 24". The sign was made in Lynchburg, Virginia by Allen Morrison Sign Co. This piece dates back to the 1950's and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
