Product Description

An original funeral directors illuminated trade sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the mid part of the 20th century, onwards (potentially later). James Crook, of London, have been trading since the 1800’s. 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 quite ‘weighty’ and made with perspex fascias and a wooden frame and metal frame. The sign illuminates both sides (which are identical) and emphasizes the lettering and numbers. We would suggest the sign would have hung inside the premises, maybe as part of a window display. The wear and tear and surface patina gives this a real authentic feel. Although a slightly macabre subject matter, this could be used as a feature light in ones home and as an alternative piece of home decor…

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 some paint chipping. 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…
