Product Description

A superb hand made trade sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it could date to the mid part of the 20th century onwards. Its a superb piece, and would certainly be a ‘one off’ too. We would suggest that this would have been hand made by the tradesman himself. We assume that this advertising piece would have probably been hanging outside of the tradesman’s premises too….

Made in what we think in sheet metal, the sign is attached to a thick wooden backing, making the piece structurally strong and of course pretty heavy too. The weathered nature and the patina from years of exposure to the elements is just wonderful. Also, the creative hand that intricately placed the individual pins around the hand painted letters is brilliant. This is a charming piece, and would add a decorative dimension to ones home or a retail environment…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the entire piece, along with some tatty areas. Structurally the piece is strong and heavy and would look ace with some old chains allowing this to hang as a statement piece. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
