An original painted tin advertising sign for Oliver & Gurden's Famous Oxford Cakes. 

This unusual sign has an elegant font with 'Oliver & Gurden's Famous Oxford Cakes - Specialists in Wedding, Christening & Birthday Cakes' in white on a contrasting navy blue with light blue behind. 

The company was formed in 1919 by William James Oliver and Aubrey Edward Gurden, they produced a wide range of fine cakes for the high end of the market until The Lyons Group acquired the company in 1968.

There are the usual scuffs, marks, scrapes and surface rust spots as expected from an item of this age and material but this rare sign still has strong colours and displays well. 

Circa 1950s
