Product Description

An original Chiropodist illuminated trade sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the early to mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s (potentially earlier). This is a cool piece!. Simply plug it in to a standard household 240v socket and the box will immediately illuminate, giving off a warm glow. Remarkably the sign still has its original wires and internal light, so the fact it still works is ace!

The trade sign is lightweight and made in a hard perspex material with steel supports (so heavier the steel end where it would have been fixed to a wall). The sign illuminates both sides (which are identical) and emphasizes the lettering and numbers. We would suggest the sign would have hung externally outside a practice, given the attrition from exposure to the elements. The wear and tear and surface patina to give this a real authentic feel…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Structurally the sign is sound with no cracks or breaks to the perspex. There are some surface scratches and scars, some tatty areas and it’s rusty in areas. We’ve given the sign a surface clean, yet a deeper clean would benefit this piece as it is still a little dirty. Please study all the photos, as it would be difficult to highlight all of the imperfections…

Such a cool piece, and probably a one off and rare survivor!

Please note : Although this is offered in perfect working order, this hasn’t been PAT tested by us so is sold as a display piece…
