Product Description

An original 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 earlier). Trussons Menswear of Waterloo, London, have been trading since the late 1800’s. This sign was originally hanging outside of their store, until it recently ceased trading. 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 Yellow glow

The trade sign is quite ‘weighty’ and made with perspex fascias and a metal frame. The sign illuminates both sides (which are identical) and emphasizes the Menswear lettering at just the bottom of the sign. The wear and tear and surface patina gives this a real authentic feel. 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. There is a notable loss to the top of the sign, but it doesn’t impact the look and feel, and of course the lights’ function. 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…
