Below is the patent informtaion from 1940 - these are dated 1942: This invention relates to signs and more specifically to improvements in glass signs provided with raised indicia on the forward face and a plurality of light reflecting elements on the rear face thereof. In the type of signs employed heretofore, to indicate the address of a house or the name of a person residing therein, a source of artificial light has been disposed within or in back of the sign for illuminating the characters formed on the forward face thereof. With this type of sign it is essential that there be a continuous ray of light which not only is expensive but entails the replacement of burnt out light bulbs. Furthermore, in signs having raised characters molded on one face with reflecting elements on the opposed face thereof, the raised characters or indici'a have been so formed as to present a blurred or hazy appearance when illuminated by a ray of light. This is especially true when an angular beam of light is directed upon a sign having a number of raised characters thereon, in that the reflected rays the sign may not be legible. The indiscernibleness of the sign results from the merging or flowing together of the oblique rays of light emanating from the different characters, thus a clear and concise outline of the sign is not obtainable. The present invention is directed to a glass sign or plate having integrally formed on one face thereof raised characters or indicia which are provided with inclined sides that merge with the base of the sign. The inclined sides and base of the sign are covered with a substance that is impervious to rays of light, while the top surface of the raised indici'a is free to transmit rays of light directed thereupon. The opposed face of the sign has a recessed portion formed therein, that is complemental to the base of the raised indicia, and which is preferably pebbled with a plurality of closely nested light reflecting surfaces. Thus, any ray of light directed toward the sign of the present invention will be reflected through the top surface of the raised indicia in such a manner as to present a clear outline of the indicia. One of the objects of the present invention is to provide a light transmitting sign having raised indicia on the forward face thereof with an opaque coating covering all of the forward face except the outlined top of the indicia, while the rear face of the sign is pebbled with a plurality of light reflecting surfaces for reflecting 55 rays of light back through the top of said indicia. Another object of, the invention is to provide a light reflecting structure embodying a pebbled surface on one side thereof and a raised indicia on the opposed side with an opaque coating covering the last named side and terminating at the edge of the raised indicia for reducing the net area of the outline of the in- To dicia while increasing the area of reflecting surface. Another object of the invention is to provide a light reflecting structure comprising a plurality of plates having nonreflecting beveled side edges thereon with raised indicia formed on the forward face thereof, said nonreflecting beveled edgesadapted to overlap edges on adjacent plates and for absorbing any and all rays of light directed thereupon. Another object of the invention is to provide a light reflecting structure that is especially adapted for illumination from the side as that in which the structure is observed and which is neat in appearance, economic of man-- ufacture and easily assembled.
