This is an authentic rare 19th century wood and plaster Birmingham canal gamekeepers warning sign and not a sign from outside of pub.
This 90cm by 76cm Victorian sign depicts a water bailiff carrying a shotgun under his arm and holding a dead game bird.
The large wording around the top of the sign reads, Birmingham Canal company, the smaller wording next to the gamekeeper reads, it’s illegal to fish or take game from the canal, Poachers will be prosecuted by order.
Although this Victorian sign has some minor damage, its plaster and paintwork are in relatively good condition for an item that had once been fixed to an outside fence beside the Birmingham canal.
This is a rare piece of 19th century Birmingham canal Victoriana and an authentic piece of Birmingham canal history which was acquired by a previous owner in the 1930’s, so possibly very few others exist on the market.
