This is an original cast iron factory sign from Metropolitan Vickers.
It is unusual because of the colours which have been used to highlight the raised letters. This sign is in original and untouched condition.
Unfortunately there is a small break across the one corner. See photos.
Size 46cm x 15cm

Nice item for anyone interested in British Engineering heritage.
