EARLY R WHITES SOFT DRINKS ENAMEL SIGN

  • -

    These early, R White's soft drinks enamel signs came in three distinct colour ways - a baby blue, a red and this dark (British Racing?) green. It features the iconic range of R White's Soft Drinks - best quality only (of course!) and dates from the 1920s-'30s. 

     

    A lovely piece of advertising, this sign remains in decent condition with a few patches of enamel loss scattered across the surface and outer edges (particularly the upper right) it also has some light surface scratching and the black lettering around the middle of the sign has started to grey/'bloom' a little, but nothing that detracts from the legibility or impact of this piece. 

     

    The sign has been mounted on a basic wooden frame with mirror plates attached for ease of hanging, though it could be mounted directly to the wall using it's original mounting holes. It measures 76.5cm high x 51cm wide.
