Large Vintage Metal Record Shop Sign “Classics for Pleasure 84p” (EMI Classical)
Judging by the font and the price (!), this sign from a record shop probably dates from the mid- to late-1970s. It’s a metal item which has holes for hanging either vertically or horizontally and it proudly proclaims that for 84p you can have “Classics For Pleasure” and not in mono, oh no – the sign indicates “stereo”! The former presumably a reference to classical music records or cassettes from the EMI label of the same name. At some point, the price was different as the section where the “84p” is displayed is in fact a sticker on top of the metal sign.
The sign has wear and tear and some surface loss, most evident in the word “classics” but it looks great on a wall and is a certain conversation starter. It measures approximately 68cm x 28 cm (26¾ in x 11 in.). Any reasonable offers considered for this item.
