VIROL Enamel Sign

Vintage (almost antique) large enamel sign advertising VIROL 'The Food for Health' dating from the 1920s.  VIROL was first produced in 1899 as an experiment by BOVRIL in their Old Street factory, and in 1900 it was registered as a seperate division of BOVRIL.  Within a decade the VIROL company became independent and continued production until the mid 1940s. The product was presented as a 'preparation of bone marrow'  and 'an ideal fat food for children and invalids'. Great vibrant colours, and would make a great statement piece in any space. Obvious signs of age and use, with some losses, but in generally good condition for age.

Measures: 183cm (6 feet) long x 61cm (2 feet) high
