Lemp Corner Signs
Given their size, graphic appeal, and rarity, corner signs are considered one of the most desirable types of breweriana by many collectors. Early tin corner signs were usually larger than the more recent examples while many of the more recent corner signs were glass with wood cabinets and internally backlit.
