Product Description

A stunning rare and original Players Cigarettes advertising sign…

Dating back to the mid 20th century, circa 195os (potentially earlier), this is a genuine double sided Players cigarettes ‘A Board’. Such a superb piece…

Standing just over a metre tall, the sign perfectly ‘free stands’. In a ‘custard Yellow’ colour wave with vibrant Blue and Red writing, this piece is quite striking on the eye. One side is in a better condition than the other, but the patina on both sides is wonderful. Its got some rusty areas and some loss to the paint work, yet it all adds to the authentic look

The wooden ‘A board’ itself is structurally great, easily collapsing with a push of the brackets either side. The wood is a little tired in places, but again we feel it simply adds to the look and feel. This is a heavy item and would look amazing in a collection or even for display purposes…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The sign is structurally great but there is an overall weathered patina with some paint chipping, rusty areas and some surface scars and abrasions. We feel the condition simply adds to the authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
