Measuring in just shy of 1.5m wide x 1m high, this Wall's Ice Cream tin sign is a real statement piece. This is a lithographically printed example, produced by Franco signs and likely to date to the early '60s. It's endured plenty of wear and tear over the decades, resulting in character by the bucket load, without detracting from the impact of the iconic typography / colour-scheme.

The sign is heavily scuffed and scratched, the printing has faded with the sun and been rubbed through in places but the sign is big enough and bold enough to remain entirely legible. Wear has resulted in a split in the metal in the lower right corner and there's a crease in the upper left that's been flatted but caused paint loss. The sign is made of a light weight alloy and can easily be hung using the single mounting hole in the middle of the upper edge.

In total the sign measures 147cm wide x 96cm 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."
