W. Berry’s Diamond Blacking (William Berry Ltd of Manchester). Blacking was the workhorse of everyday products “Save my leather!.” Everything made of leather had to be make waterproof and kept soft & supple because it was expensive to renew. Berry’s Blacking was established in 1848 & later grouped under the Chiswick Polish Company with other polish manufactures about 1907. Rare paper label for wooden countertop display box. About 1870’s as it shows London’s bootblack brigade boys & Punch trademark. Metal sign compliments original art.

Each tin sign is designed and made in the United States using 24 gauge American steel and a process known as sublimation, where the image is baked into a powder coating for a durable and long lasting finish. A vintaging process is then performed by hand to give these signs an aged look and feel. Each sign is drilled and riveted for easy hanging. All you need is 2 nails and a hammer!

Based on actual barber shop and shoeshine imagery.
