ITEM:    ART DECO KRUEGER REVERSE GLASS LIGHT

Beautiful reverse painted glass sign. Has art deco light up plastic outside frame with metal case backing and wood base. The reverse glass is two pieces. There is a black glass background piece and a light brown/tan glass piece. I believe the proper way to display is with the black glass background piece to be in the back. Depending on how you display the glass it changes up the look when lit up and not lit. With the tan glass piece in front it has bolder lettering and a brighter display. With the black glass in front it is clear glass in the front and lettering is less bold and more of a neon look. The tan piece by itself without the black glass gives a more simple look. The piece is in overall excellent condition. Has some light wear on the glass and art deco frame. Light and switch all work well. Still always best to update with a new power cord. Incredibly rare piece!  CONDITION: Excellent
