Here we have the highly collectible and highly sought after Lone Star Beer Panorama Motion sign. This sign features a limited edition numbered print (#984) of the famous painting of the Pedernales River by the late painter Porfirio Salinas, who is well known in central Texas for his landscape paintings. Even though this is a beer advertisement, it is also a very rare and limited edition art piece that will continue to gain value over the years. Salinas art has recently gone up quite a bit in value and will continue to appreciate.
This particular sign came from the world famous Armadillo World Headquarters in Austin which was pivotal in the Texas counterculture and outlaw country movement. I replaced all light bulbs and starters and adjusted the scrolls and motors. One of the motors does make a clunking sound you may be able to hear it in the video, along with the whiny puppy! But as is, everything works just like it should and the scroll moves smoothly.
Measures 36" Wide X 16" Tall X 5 Deep. Manufactured by Price Brothers in 1972. As you can tell by the video, the painting revolves around on a loop, taking about 5 minutes to completely cycle around. There is a lense beneath the scroll that makes the water look like its flowing.There are a few minor cosmetic issues as you can tell by the pictures. There is a streak worn into the motion scroll as you can tell by the photos. This is a common flaw with these signs and of the 6 or 7 of these signs that I've seen through the years, all had these streaks and this is particular sign is as minimal as I have ever seen on one that wasn't mint. Luckily its right over the top edge of the River in the painting so the water motion shows through it and makes it kind of blend in. There are also some very small and unnoticeable chips in the. Woodgrain panel on the lower right side. Just standard wear and tear that you cant even see when the sign is hanging. You will notice these flaws in the video but all in all they just add to the vintage look of this 40 year old sign.
It is absolutely stunning to watch. Lone Star Beer Motion Sign by renowned painter Porfirio Salinas - YouTube. This is considered by many to be the holy grail of Lone Star advertising and these rarely come up for sale, so don't miss your chance at this one!
