VERY CLEAN BRITISH RAIL 'WAY OUT' ENAMEL SIGN

  • -

    This lovely 'Way Out' British Railways enamel sign comes from the Southern Region (identifiable by it's green background colour) of the British Rail Network. British Railway's enamel signs are very iconic and combine simple, clear typography with a well proportioned, rounded edged shape.

    This sign is single sided - it would have originally been back to back with a matching sign so that it could have hung from the middle of the platform/station and been visible on both sides. This now hangs neatly against a wall. Perfect shop/cafe/bar/restaurant decoration.

    The sign is in particularly good, clean and bright condition. The gloss is excellent and the green is wonderfully rich. There is the smallest of marks to the 'O' and a small chip to the bottom edge and some light surface scratching, but this still remains the best example of one of these that I've encountered.

    The sign is 61cm (2ft) wide and 45.5cm (1.5ft) high.
