Self-Framed Tin Signs

Much in the same manner as chargers, self-framed tin signs have long been a favorite of collectors due to their sharp detailed lithography, vivid colors, and large size.  Produced for interior display, self-framed tin signs are formed from one piece of tin with the central image typically edged in a simulated wood-toned frame.  Here are several examples of Lemp self-framed tin signs from various manufacturers.
