Scarce enamel sign for Hancock's Imperial Extra Stout, probably about WW1 period. Damage to one corner although it doesn't affect the actual design all that much. Image of the bottle is pretty good as is most of the lettering. The exposed parts have been painted with some sort of rust retardant (unnecessarily in my view as it doesn't tend to spread if kept dry).

You could either work at removing it, or overpaint this part. My suggestion would be a simple coat or two of a light yellow/green/grey on the most affected part to blend in to the rest of the sign.

These signs have sold for quite a few hundred dollars on occasion, so a rather modest start here for a classic NZ bottle sign - a nice memento from about 100 years ago.

Nice size: measures 42 x 63.7cm.
