PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

A lovely vintage blind section made by Atlas Sign Co. of London SW19.

Dating from the 1940's/50's, this blind would have most likely been used in early buses owned and operated by Harper Bros from the West Midlands.


These blinds, with such fantastic sloping font, are a real treat. very rare and are a true piece of original transport history, with the added bonus of 'Greyhound races' and 'Speedway'.   I would be surprised if you will ever see these destinations on a blind again.

To compliment the blind it has been housed into a 70mm deep, hand painted,matt black solid timber frame with backlighting behind. The linen blind has then been sandwiched between 3mm plexiglass to allow for the light to shine through, just as it would have done on the bus all those years ago.

Plexiglass is a lightweight and stronger alternative to glass. It will not shatter like glass and therefore is much safer for shipping and potential earthquake situations.  It also offers approx 33% UV protection and is acid free, essential when in contact with products such as paper and linen.

The backlighting consists of two brand new low voltage cabinet lights, powered via a standard plug fitting.  The units can then be switched on or off from the electrical outlet.

Two hanging brackets are also included and there are four soft pads on each corner at the back of the frame.

 

FRAMED SIZE:  1467mm x 725mm x 70mm

 

CONDITION:  Very good for age.  Some minor blemishes to the blind and some small but light scratches to the plexiglass which are hardly noticable. 

 

MATERIAL:  linen blind sandwiched between 3mm plexiglass, softwood timber frame.

 

SHIPPING:  New Zealand wide.
