A wonderful and rare 'direct print' tin advertising sign for Powell's Biscuits. 

Thomas Powell and Son, established 1837, were biscuit manufacturers based in Preston, Lancashire.

This fabulous sign with it's striking colour, typography and central illustration of the royal coat of arms would make a great addition to any vintage kitchen wall, or collection of antique advertising and kitchenalia. There are scuffs, marks and scratches as well as small losses as expected from an item of this age and material. At some point in the past the sign has had some fixitive applied to the surface to preserve the fragile surface beneath but this doesn't detract from how well it displays.

Circa 1880.
