Carling Signs
(updated November 26, 2005)


In the state of Virginia, "lighted" non- paper bar signs were, and still are Illegal. Thanks to yard sales, trade shows, flea markets, antique shops, and now Ebay, I have collected a large and impressive variety of Carling Black Label signs. Many of these are from the late 1950's to Early 1970's. Like my can collection, most are not on display as I just don't have the room to display them. Yet, I am still collecting them. Don't they call this an obsession? If you ever see a Carling sign in your travels, PLEASE let me know!





This is the image from the 1973 fiber optic sign that i recently purchased off of Ebay. It changes colors and looks amazing ! Signs like this one aren't made anymore.


Below is a generic "pricer" sign that was used at retailers as a price or information board.
My sister-in-law free handed this one and is currently  hanging out in my work shed.


The oldest in my collection. Circa 1949...


This is a clock hanging in my football room....



This is a small plastic piece that is from the early 1950's....





This is a 1950's Christmas cardboard piece I purchased off Ebay last year....

 I love the 50's drive-in look of this one.



Another Ebay purchase. This one is in like-new condition.

This is a wood, metal, and plastic sign....looks rougher in person than in picture!

A small bartop sign

My wife added the foliage to this one


Interesting piece...center is like an old world ship's compass




This is a sign that goes below one of those "bar tv sets"

This is a tabletop lamp...and yeah...that is a Coors Light tin sign in the background.

This is a "tiffany" lamp, temporarily hanging in our kitchen.

This sign has a paper front, with another add beneath of the "new" pewter can design



One of the many "state specific" signs.... this one being Georgia.

A G. Heileman era sign

There are many variations of this one

Another Heileman era sign

These two mounted to the top of cash registers.
