Lighting the Way

There is something magical about neon signs and you’ll seldom get the chance to see so many iconic pieces bought together in one place than with this stunning line up from the Dingman Collection at RM Sotherby’s. The auction is taking place in New Hampshire and this breathtaking series of signage comes from longtime Ford Motor Company director, Michael Dingman, who had an abiding passion for the company’s iconic flathead V-8 models, not to mention an eye for the most striking original neon signs and nostalgia representing the great American Century.

This carefully chosen, perfectly maintained collection of neon signs with the Dingman Collection at RM Sotherby’s really is a sight to behold and harks back to a golden age of motoring and branding and we’re huge fans of all these incredible pieces here at Coolector HQ. There is such a diverse range of signage within this extensive collection that it’s difficult to know where to begin but you’ll find everything from Ford signs through to bait and tackle shops and hotel vacancy signs and everything in between.

For anyone that loves vibrant interior design endeavours and wants something to really bring their property to life and a focal point for the room, heading to this New Hampshire auction from RM Sotherby’s is definitely going to be time well spent.
