Original circa 1930s-40s Pompi’s Grill Clock Topper Sign UPDATE we found a 1939 newspaper article that referenced POMPI’S in Chester, PA. The building appears to be demolished now and it’s a vacant lot, but the location looks right. Metal sign for the top of an Art Deco neon advertising clock. Possibly a Coca-Cola clock. The lettering is very old and looks like there was another name on the sign before Pompi’s, but we can barely see it. We suspect it was new in the 1930s and then repainted for use in the 1940s, and we see no signs of recent alteration. The old lettering paint looks like it may have been reflective at one time. The black paint is the kind like you see on old electronics sometimes called “crackle” because it has a texture. There is some wear and loss to the paint and minor surface rust where the paint is gone. The sign fits on a hexagon-shaped clock that is 21-1/4 wide from side to side. The metal has a 3/4 flange for mounting. The sign itself is 4-1/2 tall. From top to bottom it’s 15″ tall and outside to outside is 30-1/2″ wide.
