“Ticket Booth Sign” 

 Reverse Painted Glass Sign 

The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, B & O, was the first common carrier railroad and the oldest railroad in the United States, with its first section opening in 1830. Merchants from the city of Baltimore, which had benefited to some extent from the construction of the National Road early in the century, wanted to continue to compete for trade with trans-Appalachian settlers with the newly constructed Erie Canal (which served New York City), another canal being proposed by Pennsylvania (which would have connected Philadelphia and Pittsburgh), the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (which connected to the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., although it never reached Ohio), and the James River Canal, which directed traffic toward Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia. At first the B&O was located entirely in the state of Maryland, its original line extending from the port of Baltimore west to Sandy Hook (opened in 1834). There it connected with Harper's Ferry (by boat) across the Potomac into Virginia, and also with the navigable Shenandoah River.


This really cool sign is made from antique jealousy glass and is reverse hand painted. Great for the collector and neat decor. Measures about 30" by 4" and about 1/4" thick.  These Black and Gold custom signs have become rar Linee to find these days. If you’re decorating or designing in different spaces, these signs can add a lot of character. This is made of old antique jealousy glass and reverse painted. 


It is a heavier item and we must ship it in a special box to prevent damage.  It is in Great Condition but there could be some minor nicking around the sides from the cutting process I would imagine however it does not take away from the appearance. 

There also could be minor scratching of black which can be touched up if you desire. 

Displays nicely, great addition to your collection or decor! 

Measures 30” long x 4" tall.
