bruner bookcover porcelain Enamel AdvertisingIf you buy, collect or trade porcelains signs then I’m sure you own the best reference book out there: the Encyclopedia of Porcelain Enamel Advertising (see pix) by Michael Bruner. But this book came to you incomplete; it did not have an Index!!!

The needed part if you are browsing through a show and want to look up that nice sign you have found. I have spent a few hours typing and put together a complete index of this book including name of the sign and most of its text, shape of sign, size, Brunner’s estimated price and the page #.

I have also categorized each sign into groups to make finding your favorite sign easier. (See below) This may be a bit silly, but I use this index a lot at shows or to look up items from an auction catalogue.

If you buy one, I will make this list available to you in the format of you choice: Word, Excel, or printed.  Shipping will add $2.00, if you want a printed copy. (Contact Me)
