Rare ld porcelain sign from Trinity Cement. This is a great old sign with good color and picture of the state of Texas on it. It also has connections to Bonnie and Clyde. Below is a bit of history.

At age fourteen Barrow associate Floyd Hamilton worked at
the Dallas Plant for a little over four years tying off the
cement bags for which he was paid six cents per hundred.

Bonnies family lived around Cement City – a neighborhood adjacent to the Trinity Portland Cement Company.

I have also been told the design logo came from the KKK but I can not confirm this.

The size is 30×26 and its single sided. The back side is white. I have not cleaned it but it seems to be in good shape except for the chips around the edges. Price is $285

Lot of diecast cars and gas pump. Gas pump is 8 inches tall to give you an idea of size. The red truck is a piggy bank but is missing a small door on the bottom. $10 for both cars and the pump.

Spurs with blue decoration on the leather. Not old but still nice $25

Spurs designed as legs. Not old but in nice. $25

Old Payne street sign with cowboy. Not a thin metal sign. $25

Yellow vintage metal table. Study table but some rust around the casters. If you want it to roll casters would need replaced. Would be great for putting plants on on a porch or something. Size is 17x24x31.5. $15

Brown metal table. Casters work on this one. Top is a bit rusty but I would paint it to change the color anyway. $15
