This vibrant enamel sign for India Cycle Tyres features some wonderful graphics - the ghosted out bicycle forks/frame add context to the tyres without distracting from it.

The India Tyre and Rubber Co. of Inchinnan, Scotland developed their repute with the production of car tyres. The firm started in 1927 and in 1930 began work on their now iconic art deco factory, India Tyres were initially very successful, employing over 2500 people but this success barely lasted half a century before the company closed down in the 1980s. It's short run makes any India Tyres advertising both scare and sought after, the fact that this piece is for bicycle tyres rather than car tyres adds to it's rarity.

The sign remains in fairly good condition with a lovely, the colours remain bright and the enamel retains a good surface - there's a little bit of enamel loss around the edges and two slightly larger areas on the middle of the left edge, though nothing to distract from the piece's punchy graphics.

The sign measures 63.5cm high x 36cm 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."
