The KONETA HOTEL SIGN from Wapakoneta Ohio. Item is 2 sided, porcelain. A few, small chips, on both sides, due to falling off building, during a 1940 thunderstorm. New neon can be added, or, item can be left as-is. That’s me, in the white t-shirt, a few minutes, after it was found. Because I didn’t want to risk potential damage (from items already in my trailer), I drove to Williamsburg, Virginia, the following week, to pick it up. Item has been on display, at a local restaurant, for free, since March, of 2016. New owner must contact restaurant owner, to negotiate a convenient, and safe removal time.
