Charmingly simple, wonderfully naive - there's something about this hand-painted 'No Exit' sign that really appeals. It's painted on a single plank of wood (not board) and has a basic edging. Likely to date to the late 1930s/early '40s it would have originally been nailed to a post and the holes from this can be seen running through the middle of the sign, though this doesn't impact the legibility or impact of the piece. The sign could early be refitted to a post, be hung by affixing a mirror plate or screw eye or simply sat as per the photos.

The sign measures 48cm wide x 18.5cm high x 3cm deep.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
