Rare sign used on steps when JFK disembarked at Love Field go to auction Oct 13
One of the most intriguing items in the auction includes an incredibly scarce set of porcelain signs from passenger flight stairs for Eastern Airlines.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Peekaboo Gallery, known as The Pop Culture Time Machine and experiential gallery has announced its inaugural pop-up auction event of rare, vintage airline memorabilia to take place on Saturday, October 13, 2018 beginning at 11:00 a.m. PT. Collectors from around the globe will have the opportunity to bid on over 150 rare and nostalgic items including a very scarce and historical piece of American history.

One of the most intriguing items in the auction includes an incredibly scarce set of porcelain signs from passenger flight stairs for Eastern Airlines. The exact sign can be seen in film and photos on the flight stairs leading up to Air Force One at Love Field on November 22, 1963 when President John F. Kennedy landed in Dallas, Texas. Both he and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy can be seen exiting the Presidential plane using these stairs and tragically returning to the plane with the President’s coffin following the horrific events of the fateful day. The sign was kept as a memento from a retired Eastern Airlines executive.

The only other known specimen is in the Smithsonian Flight Museum in Washington, D.C. The sign has been photo matched to period images. The rarity of this sign coming up for auction makes it a cornerstone to any JFK, Vintage Airline or Eastern Airlines collection. The large wing measures 91” long by 17 ¼” tall. The round eagle logo which works over the wing to swivel in horizontal position measures 27 ¾” in diameter.

Other highlights include the largest collection of vintage flight attendant uniforms covering the 1940s to the 1990s, some by such renowned designers as Emilio Pucci, Edith Head and others. Other extraordinary artifacts include rare stewardess gear from a 1944 complete TWA uniform to the ultimate 1960s EMILIO PUCCI Go-Go flight attendant fashions from Braniff Airways, an original 1970 PETER MAX Pan Am 747 silkscreen poster, original DELTA Airlines travel poster production paintings, a TWA Constellation travel agency model and an incredible selection of vintage passenger flight bags, dinnerware, programs from many airlines which evoke the glamour and excitement of yesteryear and so much more.
