A rare original vintage shop display for Viota.

This fabulous electric automated seal sits on it's block of ice, with raised red lettering advertising the brand to the front, it has a painted hardboard black base. The characterful seal is made from rubber and balances a purpose made 'dummy' packet of Viota cake mix on it's nose, this would have revolved and spun round attracting the attention of shoppers and passers by. The wiring appears to be original, however the mechanism housed within the block of ice is not currently working. The seal retains it's original finish, complete with whiskers and painted eyes, there are the usual scuffs, marks and scrapes as expected from an item of this age and material, there is a small crack to the block of ice but aside from that this very rare survivor is in good original unrestored condition. This wonderful and scarce piece would make a great addition to any vintage advertising collection. 

We are selling this as a decorative and collectable item, it will need rewiring and PAT testing by a qualified professional to bring it back to it's full former use. 

 

Please remember that you are purchasing vintage items. They have lived a life and will have the age related wear which gives the items their original and unique character.
