This is a rather rare coupling of a Hamm's rippler beer sign and a TWA advertisement. The TWA image is of a propeller driven Constellation. I've looked all over the internet and I cannot find a single TWA sign within a Hamm's rippler. The sign still produces a nice rippler effect, but the main images glass needs replacement since this one is crinkled. You can find replacements on eBay for $80. The wrinkle to the image is easily seen during the day but almost completely disappears when the sign is on and in a dark room like a bar. I ran the rippler for about 3 hours without any issue. No odd sounds or smells. I assume it probably was in a TWA terminal bar back in the 50's.
The sign is about 25 inches wide, 18 inches tall and 4 inches deep.
It will make a great Father's Day gift.
