The Meyercord Company
The Meyercord Company was established in 1896 by George Meyercord in Chicago, IL. Meyercord Co. started out as a decal manufacturer and eventually made a name for themselves as an advertising sign maker as well. The signs Meyercord produced were wood veneer signs and “Vitrolite” glass signs with a decal advertising graphic adhered to the front.
Vitrolite signs were made of curved and sometimes flat pieces of milk glass with a metal tubular frame; these signs were also the most popular. They produced wooden and glass signs for various companies and industries across the country.
