This charming enamel sign measures 26.5 cm x 17.5 cm and shows an old advertising image for 'Robin Starch': It depicts a girl from the era pulling along a doll, in a cart made from a Robin Starch box. Set in a garden scene the girl is walking on grass with hollyhock flowers in the background. In the bottom right hand corner the 'Robin' logo looks on. The main image is surrounded by a light blue border with art nouveau style water lilies and flowers. The enamel image is on a very sturdy metal plate. There is a small amount of surface rust on the back. This is a reproduction sign from c1980s. A lovely item for collectors of enamel signs, those with an interest in advertising artwork or just for nostalgia!
