A celluloid covered tin advertising showcard for Wills's Star Cigarettes, dating to the 1930s-40s. This large sign was intended as 'point of sale' advertising, so would have stood on or hung behind the counter in a shop. It features a very attractive young woman, with a hairstyle typical of the day, holding a cigarette. There is a maker's mark in the bottom right-hand corner. The sign originally had a card prop at the back, which is now missing, but it still retains its hanging loop.
The sign is in good condition with minor signs of wear commensurate with its age.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
