Burma Shave Signs. Handcrafted in the USA 3/4" thick wood by Cat’s Meow Village.


Burma-Shave advertising signs, with their humorous jingles, were spaced far apart on the roadside and made sense only to someone traveling at 35 miles per hour. Between 1925 And 1960, motorists had fun piecing the rhymes together, one phrase at a time, and reaching the wry, witty punch line with the company name on the last sign.

Over 7,000 signs lined American highways, but by 1966 they had all disappeared.

Casper, our black cat mascot, is feeling radi-claw, sitting by the roadway!  He is the sign of an authentic Cat's Meow!

This keepsake is hand-crafted from ¾” thick wood with a detailed front design and a short description on the back. You can set it neatly on a shelf, desk or narrow ledge such as window, door trim, or wainscoting. Group it with other Cat’s Meows to create your own memory of the special places you have visited.
