The very stylish art deco period illuminated display sign, designed by Internalite London, and constructed of metal & glass with acid etched lettering for Ladies, the whole in superb condition surviving from a cinema or theatre foyer and from the second quarter of twentieth century England.

In very fine condition, there are no cracks or chips to the glass, and it has been re-wired and PAT tested so is ready to use.

The term Art Deco encompasses the distinctive styles in art, architecture and design, and is typified by bright bold colours, and stylized designs derived from the onset of industrialism, as well as artistic movements such as modernism, cubism, and futurism. It is one of the best loved, most influential, instantly recognisable, international, and elegant of all artistic periods. The font used in this sign has the angular shapes that one comes to expect from the period and it is very much of the height of cinema going and of the Odeon period.

Please excuse me whilst I use the powder room…
