A BRIGHT, MID-SIZED PRATTS ENAMEL SIGN
This vibrant Pratt's enamel sign is a lovely example of early English automobilia. A petrol, or as it was more pleasingly termed at the time 'motor spirit', company that was formed in the late 19th century - Pratt's were amongst the founding father's of motoring.
This particular sign was produced by the Imperial Enamel Co, Birmingham and probably dates to the 1920s. The Anglo-American Oil Co. who owned Pratt's changed the company's name to Esso in 1935.
The condition of this sign is generally very good, the colours remain very vibrant and the surface retains a good gloss... There are some patches of enamel loss around the edges and a small, vertical line of enamel loss near the lower right corner.
The sign measures 92cm wide x 61cm high which would generally be considered 'mid-sized' and a very practical option for home interiors/sheds/bars etc.
