(including buyers premium)
This rare piece of motor racing ephemera is believed to date from the 1950s - a large, double-sided enamel route marker directional sign, with hanging chains, as originally used at the Mille Miglia Italian road-racing events of that period; the sign is double-sided and could be mounted either way around to point competitors in the right direction. A well-preserved example, retaining a good level of gloss, with some light enamel loss & chipping, primarily to the edges.
