This style of engraved brass plaque would have originally had a coloured/black wax filling in the lettering - in this example, years of polishing has worn away the majority of the wax, though enough colour remains to keep the lettering clear and visible.

Probably dating from the early 20th century, the typography on this plaque has a lovely style with a great use of serifs and a particularly flamboyant 'D' in Dr.

The sign is generally good and flat and holds a decent shine, there are a few small knocks and surface scratches. It measures 30.5cm wide, 15cm high and is around 1.5mm thick.

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."
