New in stock this week are these original 'Hop on a Bus' posters, produced in 1958 for London Transport to encourage people to use the bus in wet and windy weather. The artwork was by Lobban, who only designed transport posters for a short time, from 1956-1960. These posters are very difficult to source in such perfect condition, and the beautiful frames only add to their desirability. We think they look best as a pair, but either would look great on their own as well!
Art Partnership, who created the ever-popular 'Vinyl Hearts series', has brought us these limited edition 'God Save The Queen' artworks, which are cut from original Sex Pistols 7" vinyl records. Timed just right for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, so grab one while you can!

Refined, but a bit rough round the edges, this display makes use of an original 1930's glass and steel chandelier, and rare original linen New York subway car blind. The sofa is part of a matching 3 piece suite shown here, and the mercury glass mirror for Golden Dawn cigarettes was pulled from a pub and dates from the 1920's. We have two of these pub mirrors, and both would have been very expensive to produce. The detail on each is amazing! The giant enamelled thermometer is also an incredibly rare find, and it still works!
