Is that sign really worth that money? I would love to own it!

Nice sign - In 1976 I was shown some very extensive allotments behind the Cape Hill Breweries in Birmingham, where most of the fences were made up of these Leaping Deer signs.

 They were BIG ,mainly 60 inches or so across and most were completely rotten below where they had been stood in the ground.  But I will never forget the sight of all those leaping deer's riunning down the hillside in the sunshine.

My mate, Chris Gordon, kept a mint, 6ft wide Mitchell's and Butler's sign with the full colour picture of the brewery in my hallway for 5 years before offerring it to me for £100 - but I thought it too much!  

Happy Days - Richard

These deers leap sign without branding should be £350 - 400 in good order in my opinion.

I usually turn them away as without branding they just don't sell that well.

Cheers
