1912 Metal Sign For Asa Lees And Co Textile Machine

A 1912 Metal Sign For Asa Lees And Co Textile Machine made at the Soho Iron Works, Oldham, which would have been fixed to one of their textile machines as shown in the photo of a 1924 Asa Lees Drawing Frame. 

Approximate Size: 53 x 12.2 x 0.5cm

In rusty and pitted condition, it would make a great addition to a sign collection and act as a homage to the industrial revolution.

Asa Lees was established as an iron foundry in 1816 by Samuel Lees but when his son, Asa, took over the business in 1843 he also introduced machine-making. The company was a key machine manufacturer for the cotton and wool trades during the textile boom years in the North of England.
