This mid-century, Redgate Fruit Drinks tin sign has aged beautifully, developing a rich surface patina and a real vintage aesthetic.

This sign was produced by Reginald Corfield Ltd of Lombard Road, London, SW19 for Redgate Ltd of Traffic Street, Nottingham. A larger than average, lithographically printed tin sign with a nicely detailed pictorial of one of the company's 'Orange Crush' bottles. It would appear that at some point, the sign has been varnished which has yellowed and shows the brush strokes, this in combination with a little surface corrosion and a few surface scratches has muted the signs colours and given it a real character without affecting the legibility of the sign, or even the label on the bottle! To the reverse we see care instructions printed along the top edge and the maker's details along the bottom - a copule of nice signs of authenticity (though in this instance, the way that the front has aged couldn't be reproduced!).

The sign can be hung using it's original mounting holes and displays well. It measures 69cm high x 48.5cm wide.

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."
