Shady Rest Hotel sign font from Petticoat Junction TV Show

Recommended Posts


I was looking for the font for the SHADY REST HOTEL that was used on the sign from the TV show, Petticoat Junction.  I found this re-creation of the sign on Amazon and was wondering if anyone knew the font used here as I've had no luck identifying the actual font from the TV show.

The original was almost surely handpainted, not a font. I was unable to find a match for the recreation, but perhaps something like Old Abe would be closer to the original.
