Vintage & Automobilia

Including vintage advertising, enamel signs, travel posters, aeronautica, railwayana, automotive posters, garage memorabilia, petroliana, pedal cars, motoring literature, art and mascots.

Nothing sums up the spirit of the 20th century better than the excitement of travel. From sleek motorcars, powerful steam engines, roaring jet engines or just the quiet squeak of a toy pedal car down the pavement, this was an era when we all learned to move around in style. While most of us sadly will not have the garage space for a real train or plane, anyone can enjoy the associated paraphernalia.

From enamel signs and posters, oil cans and petrol pumps, to model toys and hood ornaments, you don’t have to be a petrol-head to reminisce the long trips to the seaside and nervous excitement as wheels left the runway. It is a field where rust and grime is a badge of honour, outdated advertising worth laughing at, and bold industrial design is proudly hung on the wall.
