RARE BRANDON INN VT GARAGE EMPIRE TIRES AUTO SHOP METAL FOLK ART SIGN R.C. MAXWELL





Hope you are sitting down folks, here is the rarest of the rare! What a find! Original hand painted sign that is signed by the R.C. Maxwell Company of Trenton N.J. The R.C. Maxwell Company of Trenton, N.J., was one of the earliest enduring outdoor advertising companies, founded in 1894 by Robert Chester Maxwell (1873-1955) and continued to operate primarily in the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania area until the company was sold in 200O. The sign advertises Imperial Tires and The Brandon Inn which we are attributing to the the Brandon Inn of Vermont, one of the oldest hospitality businesses in the state of Vermont, established in 1786. This is hands down one of the best pieces of early advertising folk art related to an auto shop that you are going to find! It is huge and impressive, measuring approx 4' (just shy) x 3'. metal sign is in great condition for its age, sits in a very well constructed wood frame, the paint has some typical crazing / cracking that you would expect, has a few minor dings and blemishes but overall very nice, the pictures show the condition clearly. This would look incredible as the centerpiece in your auto shop, garage, man cave, game room, etc. It will look great with your old gas pumps, cans, station memorabilia, oil signs, tire advertising, route 66, automobiles, primitives, folk art, Americana, etc. As good as it gets! Ultimate collectors piece, check out all the close ups, this will be the talk of your man cave! ****Please read: We will charge $100 for UPS ground shipping insured to lower 48 states, if it ends up costing less then we will refund the difference minus $25 for packing / handling, if it costs more then it is on us. Will also offer FREE pick up at our location. Here is your chance to own the best sign on the block! Good luck!



Here at Vestige_Trail the customer is #1. We strive for 100% customer satisfaction. We offer you an amazing selection of items from around the globe, from antiques/primitives to retro/mod and everything inbetween. We leave almost all items in "as found condition". This means most items have not been cleaned or altered in any way unless noted, with most items you can expect the appropriate amount of wear for the period unless otherwise stated. We will always do our best to point out any obvious flaws and give detailed information. Most of the items we sell are "vintage", we do our best to take good pictures and provide a fair and accurate description of condition. We are not experts in any particular field and sell a wide variety of items, please do your due diligence and look at all of our photos and ask questions if you are not sure about something. We are human, we might overlook a small detail or miss something completely but we will always "make it right" if you give us a chance! Guaranteed! If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase all we ask is that you please contact us and allow us the opportunity to fix the problem before you leave feedback. Thank you!

Payment is expected within 5 days of auction close. Paypal prefered but please feel free to contact us regarding other payment methods. Please offer us the same professional courtesy that we offer you, if you win and auction please pay for it!


Most items will ship within 3 days of payment received. We use priority mail and first class mail for most items unless parcel post or other method is noted in the auction. We will ALWAYS combine shipping on multiple wins to save you $$$. Most auctions are US shipping only unless otherwise stated or with prior approval. Insurance is figured in the flat rate shipping, if the shipping seems high on an item, please remember that insurance is costly. We will often use UPS ground on items of high value, rare nature, or fragility. We can also expedite shipping at your cost, just send us a request. Please realize we rarely make a profit on shipping, we try to estimate it at cost, shipping has gone up recently so please be aware of this if shipping seems high, we are always estimating shipping for the entire US so we try to offer an "in the middle" flat rate. On very large items we often offer calculated shipping. Once we have mailed an item please realize that delays and lost items are NOT our fault. We are truly sorry when something goes wrong with shipping and will do our best to assist but please be patient if a problem arises and know that we cannot control the postal service or UPS. We provide tracking on all auctions.

Unpaid items will be reported to ebay and the item re-listed. Your business is appreciated! Thank you!
