Original Vitreous Enamel Advertsing Signs
The age of the vitreous enamel advertising sign was relatively short – from the late 1880s to the 1950s. The signs were manufactured by a complex method involving sheet iron, metal oxides and glass, and those that survive are becoming less readily available and increasingly difficult to source. They have now become extremely collectible and are proving to be a good investment, with some highly sought after examples fetching many £1,000s. We always have a selection of these signs for sale, both motoring, and non-motoring, and often a number of tin signs from the 1960s.
These were originally used on early hand-crank pumps to advertise the particular brand of petrol for sale. Our brand plates are reproduced as castings from original examples, and are hand painted to produce a high quality item which will enhance any pump. These plates also look very attractive wall-mounted. Price £79 plus P&P.
