Original tin advertising sign for Ellisdons Jokes, Tricks & Novelties


Code: 10421


W: 52cm (20.5")H: 18.5cm (7.3")

An original tin advertising sign for Ellisdons Famous Jokes, Tricks and Novelties.

This nostalgic mid-century sign has a great central illustration, with red and black lettering all on a bright yellow background. There are the usual signs of wear and tear as expected from an item of this age and material but the colours are still strong. The rolled edges of this great vintage sign suggest it originally would have been attached to a display stand full of the company's products which included things like handshake buzzers, whoopee cushions and lifelike rubber insects.

Established in 1897, by the 1980s Ellisdons was the number one joke shop company in the country trading from 246 High Holborn, London WC1. 


Circa 1950s
