Product Description

An original and scarce enamel sign…

Dating back to the early part of the 20th century, circa 1920s, this is a genuine rare sign with an authentic patina. The condition is great considering its age. We love the weathered look, the splattering of rust and the original paint. Originally featuring in a garage or petrol station forecourt to advertise the ‘inflating station’, this sign is a rare piece not often to be seen on the market…

The sign is double sided and includes the makers mark, which was manufactured in Birmingham, England. One side is better that the other, but considering the age, we feel the sign has plenty to offer for a collector or simply as wall decor

There are some rusty areas and some tatty areas, but the condition of the paint in general is shiny and clean. The writing and subject matter is majorly in view. The areas of rust seeping through completes the original and authentic look. The original flange is still in place, yet it does show some tatty areas and some losses to the sign. That said, it is still strong enough to be fixed to a wall via the flange, as it would have been back in the day…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The sign is structurally great with some obvious tatty areas, paint chipping and rust. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A cool and very rare sign…
