A porcelain sign that once marked the intersection of Wall and Broad streets fetched $116,500 at Christie’s in Manhattan yesterday.

The seller, Kevin Lessin, bought the vintage sign about 25 years ago from a dealer liquidating the estate of a collector of New York memorabilia.

The sign consists of two enamel plaques set crosswise, with Broad above Wall in white letters on a cobalt-blue background.

Christie’s says the sign went up in the late 19th century and came down sometime after the bombing.
