We are extremely lucky to have acquired this one of a kind Victorian hand painted wooden Russell's Corset House shop roller shutter from Vicarage Lane in Stratford, East London.
This wooden roller shutter "RUSSELL'S NOTED CORSET HOUSE" is a magnificent piece of British social history, showcasing London as part of the 'nation of shopkeepers'.
The regeneration scheme of this part of east London means that increasing numbers of historic buildings are being repurposed and altered. This sign was recently exposed and successfully removed in one.
An outstanding one-of-a-kind decorative feature for a range of interior or exterior projects for domestic or commercial uses.
This shutter could be reinstated as a working roller shutter with a new mechanism, or used simply as decorative cladding or screening.
This is a very large piece measuring :
Length 274cm x Height 330cm
