A large timber & iron advertising sign for Corona Soft Drinks.
A very rare survivor & an early example which once topped one of the iconic pre-war Corona soft drinks delivery lorries & carts. In gilt paint over a red ground, the timber sign is topped with a representation of the early firms 1921 medal for Ginger Beer & sits in it's original iron surround.
Corona was a brand of carbonated soft drink produced by Thomas & Evans Ltd in South Wales, and distributed across the United Kingdom. The firm was created by grocers William Thomas and William Evans when they saw a market for soft drinks caused by the growing influence of the temperance movement, delivering to homes across Great Britain from the 1890's to the early 1980's in branded delivery carts, steam powered vehicles & lorries.
A wonderful piece of social history.
Wear commensurate with age, just as found & totally untouched with one side very good & the other faded, bracket remains solid with an unfinished end to the lower side.
