Product Description

A cool directional sign from a railway station…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we suggest that it would date to the latter part of the 20th century. Unfortunately we have no provenance on this sign, but we guess it would have been graced on a wall within the immediate surroundings of the station. We think the original paint has been over-painted, but we love the subject matter and the hand written nature. This could be a fun or functional piece for one’s home, or of course where it is relevant outdoors

We are selling this piece as a decorative item, as it oozes charm and authenticity. The worn surface to the metal gives this a rustic feel, and the naive finish to the paintwork is charming. This could also appeal to rail enthusiasts, or simply those that love a piece of advertising or wall art…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. In general the sign is structurally good and relatively lightweight. There are surface scuffs and scars, tatty areas and a weathered patina across the sign. That said, we feel this simply adds to the charm and authenticity of this cool piece of advertising. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
