Product description

Library ("In connection with the I.B.C. Library") - vintage double-sided enamel sign
 
A genuine original vintage double-sided metal advertising sign, with rounded corners and twin hanging holes at the top, in deep blue and white enamel finish with the word "LIBRARY" in large white letters and the words "IN CONNECTION WITH / THE I.B.C. LIBRARY" above and below; we have thus far been unable to discover what "I.B.C." stands for.
 
Although the sign shows its age in various ways (see condition description below), it remains both collectable and displayable - and would be especially suitable for hanging in (or outside) a library or study!
 
Date / era: c.1930s-50s
 
Material: Metal with enamel finish
 
Brand / manufacturer: The I.B.C. Library
 
Country of origin: unknown (probably United Kingdom)
 
Dimensions (approx.): 58.5 x 28cm (23 x 11in)
 
Condition: Both sides of the sign have large areas of surface chipping plus some smaller surface and edge chips, patches of crazing, rust (including rusting to edges), and weathering and clouding to the enamel (one side being rather more weathered and clouded than the other), together with numerous scratches, scuffs and marks (please see photos)
