Product Description

An original and rare enamel sign for the Cooperative Wholesale Society…

From its beginnings in 1863, the Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS) became one of the largest co-operative organisations in the UK, changing its name in to The Co-operative Group in 2001. It produced the famous CWS Brand goods for co-operative societies throughout the UK. These included food, furniture, clothing and household products.

This particular sign dates back to the early to mid 20th century, circa 194os. This is a genuine sign with an authentic patina. The condition is fantastic considering its age and we love the splattering of paint chipping. It’s a little beaten up with a great subject matter. Made in England…

The sign has a few rusty areas and some enamel chipping, but the condition of the paint and lettering is fantastic. The subject matter and writing is majorly visible, and we just love the rustic look. This sign is full of character and would look awesome graced on a wall in your home or in the garage…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The sign is structurally good with some obvious enamel loss, paint chipping and rusty areas. There is also some small loss to the sign in areas, but we feel it simply adds to the look and authenticity… Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
