55 Wide (including the brackets for hanging). I have received a few different stories as to the provenance of this piece. The store that previously owned it claimed that it was a piece which hung inside of the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY. Back in the days when they spelled it "Theatre", rather than "Theater" as it spelled today. A second source claims that the sign was from restaurant in NJ that went out of business many years ago.
They say that there was a fire which destroyed a large part of the building, putting the club out of business, but the sign survived unharmed, and then ended up in the hands of a local antiques dealer. Regardless of anything, it is an awesome looking piece! I have spent a lot of time looking all over the internet for another one like it, and haven't found anything even close to it.I believe this is a true 1-of-a-kind / once in a lifetime type of item! Reasonable Offers Will Be Considered.
