Azon - Langcat Bussum - Old advertising board - Enamel
Netherlands - mid 20th century

Nice old enamel sign (1940s) of Azon bleach of soap factory De Fenix from Zwolle.

The sign has the sealed product bottle with detailed label. In addition, a nice image of a Dutch washerwoman in traditional costume, promoting the product, while she is on the letters fictionally (bleekt, reinigt en ontsmet).

All of this in the Dutch colours red, white and blue on a white background ("bleached"). Here and there the sign has been damaged over the years, this gives the sign a beautiful patina.

Sign has the dimensions 47 x 31 cm, produced by Langcat Bussum, with Dutch patent number 30871.

Sign is rare and an attractive eye-catcher.
