Hamm's Sign

“Hamm’s Beer” plastic advertising sign. Sign is made in style of a patio window with slanting roof, chimney and rail fence. Window view is a scene of a tree-lined lake and night sky. A series of holes punched in the metal and backed with small varicolored lights allows a changing night sky: “Hamm’s” appears and then is followed by blinking stars in colors of yellow, blue, pink and red; finally a graded row of 4 beer glasses lights up. circa 1960. To see this sign in action, please watch this youtube video.
