Antique leather IN/OUT sign
A charming little early 20thC leather bound IN/OUT sign. Likely to have been used for traffic flow of voters at parliamentary elections, or possibly directing butlers and waiting staff to correct entrances at formal events & dinners.
A very decorative and tactile little sign with beautiful patination and wear, it is constructed of heavy gauge card which has been bound in decoratively machined leather, made like a sandwich board to either free-stand by itself (with a little strap inside to restrict it from opening too far), or to hang from a brass loop attached to the top by a little leather band. Each side has bold embossed lettering which has been gilded, one side with 'In', the other with 'Out'.
12.9cm x 8.8cm
Condition: Good antique condition with wear and patination commensurate with age, but no damage or losses to speak of. The gilt in the lettering has worn, and the tan leather has mellowed to a lovely warm colour with age.
International customers and combined shipping
International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them.
*Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
