UPDATE**** First off, thank you to all of our buyers and watchers on this Antique Separators sign, we have had a lot of interest in this piece, and alot of emails have come in about it. The general consensus among people who have emailed us, is that this may be an original factory sign for the US Cream Separator, which was made by the Vermont Farm Machine Co in Bellows Falls Vermont, starting in 1893 and lasting into the early 1900s. Reference to this company can be found on pages 217-225 of DELAVAL, SHARPLES & OTHERS CREAM SEPARATOR MEMORABILIA by Stephens, Fournier, and Benoit. I have also come across an old real photo postcard of a US Cream Separator Store with a similar sign in both appearance and design. I have added a photo of this image! Just wanted to update everyone with the information we have been receiving. If anyone has any additional questions, please feel free to email me! Thanks again to all of our watchers and buyers! Best of luck and offer WITH CONFIDENCE!!
