A really nice French business plate made of porcelain enamel over cast iron. This large sign would look great in a office or in a shabby chic decor.
The sign is for a life insurance agency called Gresham that was originally incorporated in London in 1848, and in France in 1854. This plate was made by Emaillerie Alsacienne Strasbourg (Strasbourg is a city at the German and French borders).
This plate reads: Private enterprise ruled under the March 17th, 1905 law for contracts registered or executed in France, Algeria and Tunisia. Founded in London in 1848. Founded in France in 1854. Life Insurance - Agency
Condition: This plate is in very good vintage condition with only limited enamel chips around the edge. It has 4 holes to hand on the wall. The enamel is very bright and the letters are really popping against the white background.
Dimension: 19½" (50 cm) x 15¾" (40 cm)
