1970s ENAMEL LARGE HEAVY "COLMAN'S MUSTARD" SIGN by Garnier. In excellent condition, with excellent gloss and minimal enamel loss around the edges. The smaller sign is quite common, but this is the only large version I have ever seen.Made in 1970s by Garnier of London. Dimensions are approx 19.25" x 14" (49cm x 35.5cm). A heavy enamel sign and very collectable. With rich enamel, for display inside or outside. Garnier of London produced these signs between 1970 and around 1990, when the company sadly became defunct.
Many of the signs were based on much earlier advertisements, or replicated signs they and others had made from the 1900s. Many more were made especially for companies such as Robertson's, Sandemans and Fry's as special giftware. They also supplied some of these signs to DoDo designs, of Tunbridge Wells. Details and illustrations of some of their 1970s signs can be found on page 71 of A History of Street Jewellery by Baglee and Morley, which is an excellent reference book for all enamel signs.
Garnier is probably most noted for producing many of the iconic London Underground signs and London enamel street signs.
