Product Description

A stunning original railway station sign…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we suggest that it would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s. 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. What we can tell you, is that this is a beautiful thing for decorative purposes. If you like the rustic or shabby chic look, then this piece could be for you…

Stretching over 1.2 metres in width, the sign is hand crafted in wood, hand painted. It features its original hinges on either side (making this easy to wall mount). We are selling this piece as a decorative item, as it oozes charm and authenticity. The flaky patina and the worn surface makes this a stand out piece for display in ones home, or of course a retail environment. This could also appeal to rail enthusiasts, especially those in the Gloucestershire area, where we understand it came from…

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 heavy. 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 wonderful piece of advertising. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : This was a little dirty when discovered. We’ve only given it a simple wipe, so if one spent a little time and some TLC (and maybe a clear wax), this piece could be transformed…
