Vintage Pub Sign for Magnet Ales AP419 SOLD

British beers and ales: you pledge allegiance to them or you don’t, and if you know better than to call football soccer, chances are you are passionate about your brand of brew. We, ourselves, are taking the aesthetic high-road and simply saying that this double-sided sign is a beautiful example of twentieth-century British advertising design, simple, utilitarian and yet, somehow, luscious. For its collectors the period of the first half of the 20th century weaves a potent spell.┬áThe Magnet trademark was first registered in 1911. The type face used is Gill Sans which became very popular from 1929 on.

55 1/2″ x 44″.
