This repurposed tin sign advertises the Amos ‘n’ Andy Fresh Air Taxicab, which, for only 95 cents, became the “mechanical tin toy hit of 1930,” according to the sign. Louis Marx of New York was the creator of the original sign.
This tin sign is a beautifully rendered reproduction from the early 1980s. The sign is in good vintage condition, though it does have some minor dirty spots and tiny scratches. The colorful graphics make the image of Amos and Andy in the taxicab pop out quite visibly from the neutral, cream-colored background. The sign has a hole in each of its four corners for easy hanging.
The sign makes for a fun item for any advertising or Black Americana collection.
