Art Dealer Sign

Large bronze and enamel sign advertising Thomas H. Parker Ltd, an art dealer in London, established in 1750. The sign shows the Royal warrant for HRH Prince of Wales K.G. (Edward VIII) and HM King of Egypt (King Faud I). These Royal warrants date the sign between 1922 and 1936.  Edward VIII was Prince of Wales from 1911 until his accession to the Throne in 1936. King Faud I was the King of Egypt from 1922 to 1936 - the Egyptian Kingdom only came into being in 1922. Has some minor losses to the enamel, and the plate is a little buckled (probably as a result of it being removed from the building more than 40 years ago). It has been in a garage ever since....
