A new company was formed in 1896 called the Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co Ltd. The sign has the usual areas of enamel loss, mainly to the edges, however, there are three patches of enamel loss to the body of the sign. I have tried to show the condition in the photographs. The red, black and yellow colour scheme has a good depth of colour and the enamelled lettering is still vivid and clear. The bottom of the sign has "REF MS 3/2" The back of the sign has been painted at some point, to prevent rusting.It measures 76 cm (30 inches) by 51 (20 inches). This will make a great display item, and is a wonderful addition to any automobilia collection.
