    Description

    Rare Vintage Wincarnis Large Enamel Advertising Sign Wincarnis, "The World's Greatest Wine Tonic and Nerve Restorative" was a popular British drink that was founded in 1888. This large and impressive enamel sign dates to 1904 and is in amazing condition with only a few minor chips and touchup's noted in two areas. The sign measures 37.5" x 70". It shows an attractive young lady in her finery raising a glass of Wincarnis as she sits in the back of a period touring car. A smaller version of this sign was reproduced in the late 1980's but this is an original sign that has withstood the ravages of time. One of the most desirable automotive related advertising signs ever offered!

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
