A very bright, mid-sized Martini enamel sign

LJW ANTIQUES
Thanks to a very aggressive mid-century marketing campaign by Martini, their 'bar and ball' logo has become iconic. This enamel sign is a reasonable size and features a relatively early version of the logo with a rich red 'ball' element and large, simple typography. This sign was produced in Brussels, Belgium and probably dates to the 1940s/'50s...

This is a particularly bright, well preserved example of it's type - there are minor enamel losses around the corners and one small patch to the right side of the upper edge, otherwise the main area of the sign is without damage, the fading is minimal and the white and red enamel layers remain bright and glossy. The upper right corner tab is damaged, but the sign can still be hung securely with ease.

The sign measures 68.5cm wide x 47.5cm high x 1cm deep.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 47.5cm (18.70in)
  • W: 68.5cm (26.97in)

Period:

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 the 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 at Atlam on Portobello Road, London.  The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and 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 are 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 they can be fully appreciated in-situ.  Again please just get in touch and we will see what can be organised.
