Ohio Mental Institution Reverse Painted Glass Sign The Ohio Mental Institution also know as the Ohio Lunatic Asylum is an historic structure at 2335 Wayne Ave. in Dayton, OH. It was added to the National Historic Places on November 15, 1979. The 300-acre complex was designed as a mental asylum in accordance with principles advocated by Philadelphia psychiatrist Thomas Story Kirkbride in the mid-19th century. It was renamed the Dayton State Hospital and later the Dayton Mental Health Center. This really cool sign is made from antique jealousy glass and is reverse hand painted. Great for the collector and neat decor. Measures about 30" by 3" and about 1/4" thick. These Black and Gold custom signs have become rare to find these days. If your decorating or designing in different spaces, these signs can add a lot of character. This is made of old antique jealousy glass and reverse painted. It is a heavier item and we must ship it in a special box to prevent damage. It is in Great Condition but there could be some minor nicking around the sides from the cutting process I would imagine however it does not take away from the appearance. There also could be minor scratching of black which can be touched up if you desire. Displays nicely, great addition to your sports collection or decor! Measures 30” long x 3" tall.
