Seller: jinnjann (1,723) 100%, Location: leeds, West Yorkshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 142181138089 This is an historic sign from the Dominion Engineering Company of Hipperholme near Halifax. It was bolted to an ancient wood working machine in the joiners workshop at a Dyeworks in Rawdon (near Leeds) I stripped many layers of old paint, polished the lettering and then 'stove enamelled' the background black. It looks absolutely superb! The Dominion Company of Hipperholme near Halifax is gone now but it's products are still extensively used worldwide. It measure 290mm x 132mm x 8mm thick and is made from Aluminium and weighs almost a kilo! Freepost is for buy it now price - I might extend it to offers (depending on how good they are) . I salvaged lots of stuff from here! Sad that it had to shut because our wealthy could make more money by importing from foreigners. But the governments puppeteers say; 'it's globalisation and Free trade - stop that and the world will end'. (So say those with ulterior motives) Free trade my arse! The Chinese government subsidise exporters and penalise importers and they have encouraged and enabled Chinese industry to fake, copy and steal for decades. Our Captains of industry have sailed Britain's heritage up the creek - just to enrich themselves. And when we aren't buying through the huge chinks in the foreign mail market we are buying from our European mates! Mates my Arse! They are rinsing us silly! Ah! but now the Europeans are panicking - their cash cow looks like it might sail away too! Britain is Europes biggest consumer of European goods - they need us far more than we need them. We are the placenta and they are foetus - we need to cut the cord supplying this fat Brussels offspring before they bleed us dry. . Time for us to stand on our own two feet and the get out of Europe! . Condition: Far better in the flesh! and as you can see it looks excellent in the photographs! Condition is superb! Original rare sign - and very substantially made. The workshop dates from the 1880's and machine it came from is a 1930's model.
