An amazingly, early and scarce vitreous enamel sign. Worn by time but still has the thick vibrant coloured enamel  (red, and colbolt blue) typical of the period c.1900-1920 in the history of 'Pop Culture' and the beginnings of the soft drinks industry in the United Kingdom.  Without a doubt a very desirable and decorative piece which displays beautifully.
 
History 

Although SodaStream is most often associated with the Eighties, it actually dates back to 1903, when it was launched by Guy Gilbey of London Gin Distillers. Gilbey sold the machines, which add sparkle to tap water via a pressurised carbon dioxide cylinder, to Britain's wealthier households. So in vogue were they with the well-to-do that even the royal household bought one.
 
In the Twenties, popular flavours concentrates were introduced, such as Cherry Ciderette and Sasparilla were introduced.
