Item Description

J. Lyons & Co. were best known for their chain of tea shops which opened from 1894 and finally closed in 1981, and for the Lyons Corner Houses in the West End of London. From the 1930s Lyons began to develop a pioneering range of teas, coffees, cocoas, biscuits and cakes that were sold in grocery stores across the world.

Here we have an unusually small "Lyons' Tea" enamel 'banner' sign in the company's iconic blue and orange colourway. It's likely to date to the 1920s/'30s, the colours are strong and it retains a reasonable surface gloss, though there are patches of dulling (see the angled photos where I've tried to capture this). There is some enamel loss around the outer edges - most notably the upper right corner and lower middle, the main area of the sign is in generally clean order.

The sign measures 90cm wide x 30cm high, it displays well and can be hung using the original mounting holes.
