I was watching American Picker last night and they found this metal pressed sign for a denim brand I never heard of....Tiger Overalls by JM Robinson, Norton and Co based in Kentucky. Not exactly an original idea with two tigers pulling apart a pair of pants.




Seems to be one of smaller brand from the early 1900s.

I think almost every railroad depot had a factory making overalls, different brands all over the place.

My offer was just accepted for this on ebay. It seems like the perfect lapel/pocket ornament and, like most db fetish items will have that interior detail that will only be known to a few.

That is a VERY good find.  Some jealousy here.
I make things out of leather.
