An original vintage advertising showcard for Wells' Crown Brand Fireworks.
Wells Fireworks was founded by Joseph Wells in 1837 in, Dartford, Kent; having learned his trade as an explosive lighter man on the River Thames in London. Wells Fireworks became the leading display company in the UK and established a reputation for the manufacture and display of the finest quality fireworks. Using the Wells “Crown Brand” the company displayed at Cowes and Henley Regattas, Coronations and Jubilees to the Royal Family. Securing an international reputation for excellence this led to high value commissions including the LA Olympics, the Squaw Valley Winter Olympics, Rose Bowl displays and designing the original fireworks shows for Disneyland in Florida.
This wonderful and rare 3D point of sale showcard has great graphics, colours and an unusual subject matter. It folds out and has a stand to the back, there are signs of scuffs, marks, wear and tear as expected from an item of this age and material. There is a small piece missing from the fuse of the central firework, as can be seen in the photographs, but apart from that this scarce example is in good original untouched condition and would make a great addition to any collection.
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.
