Product Description

An original railways plaque…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we think it could date to mid earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1940s, potentially later. This is an original wooden plaque that would have graced the side of a train carriage for the North Eastern Railway. Like some that are seen with transfers or decals stuck on, this particular piece shows its originality on its original piece of board. It has a smooth feel and the emblem (or crest) is very eye catching close up. With some added wear and tear, this is a charming piece and would look ace graced on a wall

Also, a nice addition is the original instructions on the reverse on how to create the sign itself. Awesome…

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 art work, and the wooden board shows some paint chipping and some tatty areas. 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…
