I was recently contacted by John Lee who writes: I have found an old Silverwood brass sign [ pictured above ] I am trying to track down where it has come from, I found this website and was hoping someone could help me? I would be very grateful.

The SILVERWOOD sign is not a very big sign: 16 inches long, 2 1/2 inches deep, and it is made from brass. I found it at a scrap yard in Cornwall, England. The sign just says SILVERWOOD. There are no other markings that I can find on the front or back.

If anyone can identify the sign please contact John at
