1930s Lissen Radio Showroom Price Tag Holder
This wonderful looking object is a 1930s Lissen Radio Showroom Price Tag Holder. The shop sign would have been situated close to or on the shop counter making it easily accessible for the customer. These days we would call it P.O.S (Point of Sale) marketing.
Made from wood, the face has a black background and a 'Lissen' logo line drawing of a little girl listening to a 'Lissen' radio. The rear of the wood is plain.
In pretty good condition for its age, it does have scuffs, scratches and blemishes on both sides, commensurate with age and use.
Width: 28cm (11")
A wonderful historical item ideal for displaying in the radio shack or a nice collectible for the Lissen or radio ephemera aficionado!
