This fantastically detailed lithographically printed tin sign for Grant's Cherry Whisky dates to the 1920s/'30s. It was produced by Wedekind & Co, London for Grant & Sons distillery, Maidstone.

The pictorial scene shows 'Mr Weller Senior' and 'Sam' around a table outside a public house raising a toast with a glass of the whisky. There's an opened bottle in Mr Weller's hand and another on the table ... Sam is leant on a particularly well detailed case of the whisky. To the lower left there's a captioned dialogue between the two men -

'Mr Weller, Senr.':
"Samivel my boy, Grant's Cherry Whisky is tip-top & salivating"
'Sam':
"You're right Guv'nor it's first rate if you feel bad it makes you WELLER".

Considering the age of the sign and the vulnerability of the printed metal, it would have to be considered to be in a good condition. The colours are bright and the surface even. There's a minor amount of corrosion leaching through around the outer edges, a small patch to the middle of the lower edge and a few areas of paint loss scattered across the face of the sign. Evidence of taping to the rear imply that it might've been put into a frame at one stage. The original hanging tab remains in place in the middle of the top edge.

The sign measures 32.2cm high x 25.3cm 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."
