For your consideration is a fully period correct professionally restoredmodel 13N Koken Barber Supply Co Saint Louis, Missouri USA barber pole advertising sign. Based on similar poles in original sales literature I estimate it to be from the 1900's into the mid 1920's. It measures approximately 28" tall excluding top globe, 10" diameter at base its widest point & stands 15" away from the wall or mounting surface at the base. The two bolt holes on the back bracket are approximately 24-3/4" center to center vertically. The painted parts are professionally powder-coated with the nearest-original period correct colors (pale yellow on brackets, pale green on ends) for a very long lasting clean look which will provide years of durability outdoors. The glass cylinder is solid & the single medium base light works. The vintage type-A motor runs smooth. The original nameplate placard included & was not cleaned just sealed with a clear lacquer. The new indoor cord is not grounded & should be inspected by an electrician before use. The cord could be replaced if using outdoors for an additional $75. Consider the pictures part of the description. No returns. Overall excellent condition for the collector or working vintage barber shop. Any questions please ask before bidding.
