Armour's enamel display plinth
A rare butchers shop enamel display plinth, produced to advertise and showcase 'Armour's canned hams, ox tongues & corned beef'.
Early to mid 20th century, the plinth is made of enamel on steel much like signs of the era, with reinforced corners and cast steel feet on the underside. Each of the long edges are emblazoned with bold black typography.
An unusual and scarce piece with a distinctly art deco feel, the stepped cutaways on each end are complimented by pronounced angular feet on the corners, each braced by a polished steel cap.
Footprint to each corner
35.3cm x 29.3cm (13-7/8" x 11-1/2")
5.4cm tall (2-1/8")
Lovely original condition with some old chips to the enamel which have also rusted slightly, along with tarnish to the corner braces and some other age related wear and marks.
International customers and combined shipping
International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them.
*Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
