This lovely double-sided "We Sell Kodak Products" enamel sign shows the iconic logo and colour scheme of one of the world's largest film/camera companies. This particular sign dates to the 1950s.

It has survived the decades well. The side pictured first retains strong colours and a generally good gloss with a just little dulling / discolouration to the outer edges of the yellow mid-section. The other side (pictures 3 / 4) retains a good gloss for the red enamel layer, but the yellow enamel layer has lost it's surface gloss (see angled photo for a better understanding of this). On both sides there's a little staining / marking running down from the fixing holes (likely it was originally hung using iron fixings, perhaps in a costal location). Generally though the wear doesn't affect the impact or legibility of this sign and there's minimal enamel loss - just a little chipping around the mounting holes / outer edges.

A fairly uncommon, though highly popular subject matter, this sign can be hung using it's original mounting holes and displays well.
It measures 61cm wide x 46cm high.

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."
