TWA sign ( 32x21" ) and metal B-707 (1/72 scale with my home made stand ) bought at auction last week. Both were at the ticket counter at the Indianapilos airport in the 60 or70's. Sign is made mainly of fiberglass with thin plastic coating on front, the grids on top and below TWA are metal bars. So hard to find these fabolus signs. The plane is a Riffe I assume....
What a great pair of historic items from a bygone era. The condition of your 707 is amazing. I have a ticket desk/check in sign for Balkan Bulgarian Airlines from the 1970s not as old and significant as yours items. Thanks for showing us these TWA beauties, great to see them.

Excellent score! I love the T-Dub twin-globe logo. I too collect ticket counter/gate signs when I can find them. Here is an original Northwest Orient logo (fiberglass) and an all metal West Coast airlines logo that came from the ticket counters at KSLC.
And an old route map that hung in the Crown Room in SLC as well as the gate flight board from Eastern
Only other sign ( if you can call it ) I have in my collection is this wooden and metal North Central Duck logo. I got it together with this beautiful mint Nemoto CV-504 plane ( 1/72 scale ) They came from one of the executives that worked for the company.
