Vintage Engaged Sign in Cream with Black Lettering
A quirky little item, this “ENGAGED” sign which presumably was originally used perhaps for a meeting room, or perhaps a much smaller room (!), to indicate that it was occupied or in use. In an off white ground with black lettering which is slightly impressed, the sign is made of a plastic material with holes for hanging the sign on the appropriate door handle. The sign has at some point been used in an office, because it would appear that someone has etched the word “OFFICE” on the back of it by hand. We think this piece could continue in use with its original purpose, but it also might make for a quirky engagement gift for a soon-to-be wedded couple with a sense of humour.
The sign measures approximately 6in. by 2 in. (15cm by 5cm) and comes complete with string. In good general condition, with some signs of age and use.
