Original ~ c1920 ~ "Swan Vesta, Bryant & May" Matches Enamel Advertising Sign:
$255

This "Swan Vestas" sign advertises a brand of matches manufactured by "Bryant & May Ltd". In 1850 Francis May and William Bryant started importing matches from Sweden and by 1853 "Bryant and May" were selling over 8 million boxes of matches per year. In 1905 they merged with the Diamond match company, one of their brands being "Swan Vesta". The "Swan Vesta, Bryant and May" brand still exists today. There are some areas of enamel loss and nibbles to the metal along the edges, as well as a few patches of enamel loss to the body of the sign and a hole just below the match box. There is also the usual scuffs and scratches that you would expect from an item of this age and use. However, the stylish lettering and logo are still clear and have a good depth of colour, as does the red background. It measures 79 cm (31 inches) long and 20 cm (8 inches) wide.
