A full colour pictorial enamel sign for Morse's sanitary distempers, with a beautifully illustrated image of two decorator boys carrying a board with their brush, a tin of washable distemper and a packet of Fresco distemper water paint. 

Made by the Patent Enamel Co. Birmingham - early 20thC, the deep sheen and use of over 10 colours makes this a very good example of a very rare sign. 

'Morse's Distempers, First in 1875 - Foremost now'

914mm (36") x 610mm (24")

 

Some restoration:

The top left corner has been replaced and restored, along with some touch out in places around the edge of the sign. The body of the sign is in generally very good condition, with some small areas of restoration and touch out in places. Most predominantly on the second E of 'Distempers' and around the foremost decorators left eye. There are some light surface scratches and one or two tiny dings and marks, but generally the majority of the sign is original and in very good condition.

Please enquire for more details.
