Painted Pine Sign; ‘Dog Loose Keep Out!’ c.1960

The large painted pine sign, repurposed from a panelled door and at four and a half feet wide, the surface being beautifully worn and textured reading ‘Dog Loose Keep Out!’ in black block script to an ivory ground with the border formerly being black and remnants of red throughout, surviving from 1960s England.

The sign is in good structural order and is ready to be hung with fixings to the reverse. The paintwork has chipped losses as photographed.

The style of the font gives us the 1960s with the type of exclamation mark especially very similar to political posters of this period.

A large and punchy sign with a beautifully textured surface.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
