Chemist Sign c.1960

Vintage Double Sided Cast Iron Chemist Light box Sign

For sale is a wonderfully well aged true vintage 1960s original outdoor chemist sign. This item is double sided and illuminated (PAT Tested) and re-wired for the modern interior. The item is very large and would have originally been hung outside the main entrance of a local chemist shop in England UK. The item is covered in original vintage white light reflective plastic and has individually cut to size red lettering on both sides. The structure is reinforced with cast iron metal sheets that show aging through wear and tear and rust (this does not affect the structure or functionality of the item in anyway). The 2 hooks are also originally and made from solid cast iron, they shows signs of aging but are very solid and functional ass you would expect.

Overall a brilliantly quirky and highly collectable decorative sign, it’s rare because it’s a complete original apart from the updated electrics. A real statement piece for any cool retail space, man cave or funky interior industrial space, a real rarity.

Condition: Aged plastic, light scratches, faded colour, and rust on metal, no breaks or cracks to effect it structurally or functionally.
