Description
Our Gee Bee R-2 porcelain sign is an authentic reproduction of an airplane ad from a bygone era. Made in America, this 10x14 inch steel sign is a great pilot gift or gift for a collector of aviation memorabilia.

The process to create this porcelain enamel Gee Bee Racer sign is the same method used in the early 1900s. The colors are not paint, but are actually finely ground glass crystals. When the crystals have been fired at 1350° they fuse to the heavy 18 gauge steel plate creating this novel sign. This sign is considered a second because of some marks in the blue area. Hard to see in photo but they are there.
