Coffee Advertising Figure
We have never seen the like before and you are unlikely to find one again, a rare survivor.
A rare mid-20th century English Ruberoid shop counter advertising display. Stamped at the base and reverse SHONE, MADE IN ENGLAND and BERITE. The figure is holding an old hessian piece of cloth in it hands to show a coffee bag of sorts.
Dimensions in inches: H 22 x D 17 x W 11
Origin: United Kingdom
Circa: Mid-20th Century
Completely solid in structure, aged surface as shown with a deep natural patina across all areas. The Ruberoid surface has dried out and aged over time leaving a crackle effect in most areas of this figure. The hands show a lot of this crackling effect and shows signs to repair across the inner palm section. The paint has also faded in sections. The stencilled text has most likely been replied at some point and would likely have worn away on several occasions. The figure has a thick coat of paint over in the colour cream which looks original to the figures age.

What Our Customers Say
When asked, the seller, Harry, provided another picture of this charming object next to something small (a pear) so I could better visualize the scale. He was gracious and warm throughout our brief correspondence. While it was too late to get the train here by Christmas day, with an added challenge of a strike in England and foul weather here, I was stunned when he found a way to get it to me TWO DAYS before Christmas! It must have traveled on the Hogwart’s Express!Private Client, USA
