What a lovely sign. The colours shouldn't be to hard to match, so i'd say restore it.

Thanks for the encouragment guys, it looks like the maker is Imperial Enamel Co Birmingham.   If anyone has any pictures of signs that they have restored perhaps they could post them on here and we could start a restoration thread. I'me going to have a go at restoring this one and could include pictures as it goes along.    Cheers....Mel.

I think in this instance there probably is justification for restoration! (And I don't usually say that!)

I've heard a whisper ....only a rumour mind you

...That Hinks thinks you should give it a few meaty hits with a hammer as more rust would be very appealing
