Antique Edwardian Tin & Enamel Grocers Shop Price Spike

antique edwardian tin enamel grocers spike price sign tag

 This is a listing for ONE antique Edwardian grocers price sign. Just the 1′ sign on the left is now available to purchase, and it is a wonderful piece of antique shop advertising ephemera.

Made of tin, with an enamel face, the use of bold font and vibrant colours really stand out on these antique pieces. I can just imagine how colourful the food displays would have looked with an array of signs like this on display in the shops.

Dating from around 1900, the grocers spike is in fair condition for its age. There are some scratches to the enamel on both the signs, as well as patches of oxidisation around the edge of the sign and on the back.

However, the colouring and typography is still very clear. The racing green colouring of the numbers blends to black shading, making a bold impression against the beige backdrop. A golden border can still be made out in both pieces, although the enamel here has worn a little more. Both signs would make a wonderful display item as part of a kitchenalia collection or hung on a kitchen wall.

Dimensions of each spike:
Height, 15cm
Width, 8cm

UK delivery included; international delivery £13 maximum depending on location.
