Framed original 1950s British Rail travel poster promoting Devon by rail. The artwork is by Jack Merriott (1901-1968), who provided artwork for many of the British Rail promotional posters. He was a renowned landscape and portrait artist, working in both oils and watercolour. Below the image the text reads “Published by the Railway Executive (western region) (P.W.64)” and “printed in Great Britain – Jordison & Co. Ltd., London and Middlesbrough”. 

The poster is slightly faded - in particular the old British Railways logo is very faded from the original red colour, but still visible at the bottom of the poster - and shows some minor discolouration and age marks. The centre vertical crease and three horizontal creases are visible on close inspection.

Mole Vintage is run by husband and wife, Kevin and Sara Moore and grew out of our shared enthusiasm for sourcing unusual and characterful vintage items.  We are not especially interested in (or expert about) high-end antiques, or followers of current trends, nor bound by a particular period, but we are drawn to pieces which have a strong presence.  Either because of their inherent quality and design, or because they are something unique or eye-catching. 

Much, but not all, of our furniture, lighting, mirrors and decorative items are sourced in France, where we have developed a great network of local dealers since we started six years ago.
