Seller: noveaurose (1,447) 100%, Location: Saginaw, Michigan, Ships to: US, Item: 192019574334 Own a piece of retail history, with this original and very rare huge SAKS FIFTH AVENUE metal store sign. In original condition, with normal wear, and no touch ups, repairs or other alterations.This is an awesome sign, hand screened with the beautifully simple yet elegant shape identified with historic Saks Fifth Avenue early logos. I purchased this sign from a dealer for use in photo shoots, and am now ready to part with it. It is heavy, and straight. As you can see by my numerous pictures, it has wonderful wear, evidencing its normal use and fabulous age.~ ~ ~I lived behind Saks Fifth Avenue in Bevelry Hills, California during the early 1970's, which is located at the corner of Wilshire and Peck Drive ( its current location ). At that time Saks was still the great specialty retailer that hallmarked the greatest department stores of our age. I have a clear recollection of signs exactly like this one, providing arriving customers with the store parking and entrance locations. Because those signs were already aged and had been there for years, I can be sure this sign dates to well before 1970.Shortly thereafter, I worked at Saks in Woodland Hills, when they opened their Promenade location. My job was in visual merchandising, and at that time, from the very beginning of Saks history, we made all of our signs in house. Every department had letterpress signs identifying designers, venders, special products and announcing events. We had a full time sign maker on hand every day, so I have every reason to believe Saks had this sign made for each store according to very specific and personal guidelines. SAKS FIFTH AVENUE took great pride in their signage. It's a little hard to part with, but it deserves to be featured prominently in a place of honor. Proudly measuring a full 60" x 37" tall. Original holes for screw mounting on all four corners. Shipping WITHIN USA via FEDEX GROUND is included in price. This does not include Hawaii, Puerto Rico or Alaska where additional fees may apply. I would consider shipping outside the USA depending on location and restrictions. Additional fees will apply. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding any aspect of the details for this item, including possible shipping options. Thank you for your consideration.
