Very Unusual, Early Copper Renault sign

LJW ANTIQUES
This Renault sign is distinctly unusual - it's made from copper and features the company's earlier typeface. The letters are individually screwed on to the main diamond shape and over the years it has developed a lovely, deep, rich colour. As both the materials and the quality would have made this a very expensive piece to produce I would guess that it was originally used at the company's head offices.

The iconic diamond shape is missing it's lower tip and I would assume that this has been cut off at some point, though as this is the only piece of it's type that I've encountered it's difficult to reference - the cut is very neat and even so it may be possible that it was always designed to sit above something/on a surface...

The piece measures 50.5cm wide and 58.5cm high, the letters protrude by around 0.5cm.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 50.5cm (19.88in)
  • W: 58.5cm (23.03in)
  • D: 0.5cm (0.20in)

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."
