Product Description

An original London Underground illuminated sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950. This beautiful piece is made in steel with an acrylic shell, in White underneath. With raised letters in Red, this particular sign would have probably hung near a staircase or escalator in or around the underground station. It would have originally been illuminated too. It’s large and heavy, yet it has a great look and this could form a great feature light or mood light for ones home…

The sign itself has a few areas which are tatty, yet we believe it shows the charm and originality of this piece. Given that the lighting inside was very dated and tatty, we have gutted it and simply placed a string of LED lights inside to show how an individual could simply make this into their own piece. An electrician could easily place a strip light back in it, be we thought we would leave this to the imagination of the new owner. One can simply unscrew several bolts to remove the acrylic fascia to reveal the insides. This piece would look awesome hanging in a retail setting, or even placed in the corner of ones room (vertically)…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and abrasions, some paint chipping and general tatty areas, yet the sign is structurally good and strong with no breakages or cracks (it’s a solid piece). We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : The LED strip lights currently inside the sign are not included with the sign
