1950s Oval Italian Vintage Advertising Enamel Tobacco Sign ‘Sali e Tabacchi’

$895.71Asking Price


This vintage white enamel tobacco sign was used by small shops in Italy selling state-monopoly products such as tobacco and cigarettes but also salt and stamps. This ‘Sali e Tabacchi’ oval sign with rounded edge is on white background and decorated with the emblem of Italy that was formally adopted by the newly formed Italian Republic on 5 May 1948. "Rivendita numero six" or "Resale number six" is the official license number referring to the absolute number of tobacco shops in a specific Italian town. The lower part of the sign is moderately rusty and the writing "Repubblica Italiana" (Italian Republic) is faded.
