Vintage tin sign advertising Sandie Shaw Shoes. Sandie Shaw was a British pop singer in the 1960's, famous for performing barefoot. She was part of the "Mod" scene in the U.K. Some of her known hits were : Puppet on a String, and There's Always Something there to Remind Me. This vintage sign measures 14.25 by 20.25 inches. It is made of tin, printed with pop art images in bright enamel colors. Style is similar to Peter Max. I see no artist signature on the piece. It has a pre-psychedelic look, in the London Mod style. In the mid to late 1960's, London was the hip center of mod fashion, and this sign shows it off. This sign has 4 holes in the corners, to be used to hang the advertisement. The holes are original. The graphics are wonderful, evoking the era of Yellow Submarine. This sign is in good condition considering it's age and use. If you look in the photos, there is a 1 inch scratch in the yellow sunshine field, and a little oxidation next to it in the striped borders. A few other hints of oxidation and light scratching in the black field and the borders. Normal oxidation on the reverse. But really overall, good. Just normal usage for a sign. Looks good on the wall, where you don't really notice the small issues. Color is still outstanding, and that's what counts. Not faded at all. Bold 1960's images evoke the Mod era. This is a period piece, probably British in origin.
