Lyons Tea - original vintage double-sided enamel advertising sign (SOLD)
A genuine original c.1930s vintage double-sided metal / enamel sign advertising "Lyons Tea", in deep blue with orange border and white lettering, with mounting flange to one side.
Although it shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it nevertheless remains an attractively displayable piece of vintage advertising memorabilia, and would make a wonderful "conversation piece" for a vintage-inspired kitchen or garden.
