Rare antique opposing pair of die cut enamel signs presenting the Baker Boys of Sunlight Soap fame. These signs were produced by the Chromographic Enamel Co of Wolverhampton circa 1905, as detailed in the 1978 book 'Street Jewellery - A History of Enamel Signs' by Christopher Baglee & Andrew Morley (see photos of actual pages). This pair were discovered in Australia and repatriated to the UK some years ago, which may explain the exceptional condition - the right hand sign has minor enamel losses, but neither sign has any folds, and very little signs of rusting.
Sunlight Soap was introduced in 1884 by British company Lever Brothers - it was the first packaged and branded laundry soap. Famed for their £1000 purity guarantee marketing ploy, the brand is still in use and recognised in countries around the world.
Each sign measures: 32" (81cm) wide x 24" (61cm) tall
