Product Description

A stunning, original sign from London’s West End theatre district…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we understand that it could date to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1980s. We also understand that this was painted as was part of a wall feature in the foyer of ‘The Palace Theatre’ in the City of Westminster, London. Notably advertising the famous ‘Miss Vesta Tilley’ as the top of the bill…

This particular piece is so charming. It stretches over 1.5 metres wide and is hand painted on what we think is cardboard, and then framed in an aluminum shell. The sign shows some beautiful paint work and some striking colours. The sign has had 29 original fairground cabochon lights added, to give this piece the ‘theatrical look and authentic feel’. Such an cool piece of art, and one that is signed by ‘Roga’. An artist we are a little unsure about too…

The sign is lightweight, therefore one could easily add some fixings and mount this to a wall or fixture. Equally, this would also look cool simply standing against a wall in ones home, or a feature corner…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Structurally the entire piece is good. The original paint work shows some surface scuffing and chipping, and there are some dents and imperfections to the ‘thick cardboard backing’. The painting itself is naively done, yet we think it is beautiful, especially with the added illuminations. Please do study the photos as it is difficult to highlight all of the minor imperfections…

Please note : Although this piece has been professionally wired, we do not have a PAT certificate (although this was only done a good couple of weeks ago).
