Vintage neon beer signs. Bar mirrors. Pinball machines and arcade games.
During the three decades-plus that Shawn Jacobs owned Cicero's, the music venue/pizza joint he operated in the Delmar Loop until his death this June, he gathered quite the collection of bar paraphernalia. Now it's all for sale — with an auction planned at the late bar owner's home in Chesterfield on August 20.Tim Seiffert, co-owner of TNT Auction & Estate Services, said the Jacobs family hired his company to sell the remarkable collection. That includes as many as 60 neon beer and bar signs, more than 35 beer taps, liquor decanters and advertising pieces, two pinball machines, an electronic casino poker machine, and an air hockey table.
