A 1980's original all glass-tube Neon with a gorgeous design face and hand-painted blue revealing curtains, 38 inches tall and 48 inches wide, 4 inches from wall. Special 1980's wood crate included. This is the actual miniature, double-exposed for an argument between a billboard (Nastassja Kinski) and Frederic Forrest.Only one of each were built. This artwork was repositioned on it's background and installed in a absolutely unique 2.125 inch square-tube polished aluminum frame in the late 1980's, with a strong sliding wall mount, hidden lock and accommodation for new internal ballast (not included). This is the biggest and one of the only surviving miniature neon out of dozens created and shot for the film.
A few others may be in private hands. The artwork's face, Plexiglas ® background and polished aluminum frame is ready to electrify, but all the blue curtains need repair.
Bill Concannon, the original neon artist of this filmed Hollywood miniature, has aranged for repair of all the larger curtain neon tubes. The small tube face neon is in good condition.'In order to make the signs for the miniature Las Vegas scenes work, neon artists Larry Albright and Bill Concannon needed to develop a process for making neon signs where the tubing was 2mm in diameter.
Custom glassblowing burners, electrodes, and other hardware needed to be fabricated from scratch. By comparison, most neon signage is between 10 & 18mm and most of the tubing on the Las Vegas strip is 15mm. This is NOT the later silicon-tube LEDs that has cheaply replaced almost all signage in the last few years.
