Enamel Signs

Railwayana Enamel Signs
Vitreous Enamel signage is well over a century old and was a perfect system for colourful hard wearing signs for outdoor use. The railway companies used enamel in huge numbers and many of those signs have survived and made their way into private collections.

Without a doubt the most popular enamel signs are the BRITISH RAILWAYS Totem station signs of 1948 when then the big four were nationalised.

The range of prices in the enamel is very wide and buoyant. Some totems for example make £200-£300 at auction then EVERCREECH JUNCTION from the much loved S&DRly made over £10,000.00 a few years ago.

We carry a range of enamel in stock but are fortunate enough to be in contact with many private collectors who from time to time want to sell. Please send us your requests.
