Product Description

A rare and original railway sign…

Dating to the latter part of the 19th century, or maybe early 20th, this is a superb survivor. This ladies room sign would have been found on a fixture in an old train carriage. The original paint work can be seen behind the glass, albeit some parts haven’t survived. The sign is housed in brass, with a metal background. It’s an exceptional piece of history, and it’s beautiful on the eye

Although as described some parts of the original paint work are missing, we still think this is a wonderful piece of decor for one’s home, or indeed great for display in a retail setting. Equally, we don’t believe this would out of place in a museum

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and abrasions to the sign and there is wear and tear commensurate with age. Behind the glass, one can see the condition. For us it’s a piece of art as it stands and it oozes charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
