Product Description

A beautiful, early French oil advertising sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1920s. We understand from the previous owner that this was recently discovered in France, and presume it would have once graced the interior or fascia of an automotive setting

The patina to the sign is wonderful! Hand painted on canvas, the sign has retained some good colours and paint work, and given its age, we think as it is creates a desirable piece of advertising or art. This would look superb graced on a wall on one’s home or of course in a retail or car related setting…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The sign is in general in okay shape, with surface marks and abrasions and some tatty areas. It’s lightweight, therefore it can be easily wall mounted too. There is a slight warp to it from a side view, yet once fixed to something it would sit flat. Due to the antique nature, it is showing its age, but for us this condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be difficult to highlight all imperfections…
