More About The Porcelain Condition - Most of these signs have chips in the porcelain and there is no correct way to add new porcelain in a manor that would be consistent with a full museum quality restoration. Also in the investor collector world there are two schools of thought. One is consistent with ours that it is best and correct to display the wounds, bullet holes etc and age marks, chips etc. on porcelain signs. The other is to doctor with paint finishes to cover the true condition of the porcelain to make the sign show in pristine condition. This is like putting lipstick on a pig no matter what you do its still a pig. We feel the porcelain sign has much more value in its true condition than it does doctored. however if you are of the school of thought that your sign should be in pristine condition we offer to do this process at your request.
