Wills Gold Flake Original Enamel Sign
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & HISTORY
20th Century original Wills Gold Flake cigarette enamel sign with bright vivid colouring and scratches on patina as one would expect from an older sign but around 90% pictorial still intact. Some missing edging as can be seen in the photo but this does not spoil the look of this collectable sign.
In 1830 W.D. and H.O. Wills cigarette company was formed in Bristol, England, with "Three Castles and Gold Flake" being developed and manufactured in 1878 and "Woodbine" ten years later. "Gold Flake" is not a brand, nor company but refers to cigarettes using rich gold flake tobacco. In 1900 a subsidary in Australia was founded by Henry Herbert Wills which was named "W.D. & H.O. Wills (Australia) Ltd."
