Grab a slice of early Australian advertising history with this The Sydney Mail Best Illustrated Weekly sign - era 1930's.

Sydney Mail Best Illustrated Weekly Price Sixpence Sign

SKU: OES002
$650.00Price
  • PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & HISTORY

    Heavy enamel with some missing edging and patina and previous restoration work to lettering. Still a great talking piece of Australian advertising signage and would grace any restaurant, office or home wall with pride. Vibrant white and blue colours and can easily be placed on a backing board or wire ready to hang. Usual marks on patina for a 20th Century sign but a great starter for an Australian enamel sign collector.

     

    The Sydney Mail was a weekly Australian magazine commenced by John Fairfax and Sons in July 1860 to approximately December 1938 when the magazine ceased production. The Sydney Mail Weekly was best known for its illustrations and several varieties of this sign have been seen. We have in our own collection the 3/- (three pence) sign and this six pence is still a very collectable piece of Australian advertising history.
