This attractive porcelain point of sale shop advertising sign is a very collectable item in it's own right, but is also of value to china shop retailers, dealers, or those with units in antique centres to enhance the appearance of display cabinets. In these circumstances they are sometimes referred to as "Silent Salesmen" and in many cases they are completely unavailable for sale.

This example by the German manufacturer Wallendorf is remarkably delicate and stylish yet also strongly formed into the company logo. It features a curved base which provides a free standing facility on any flat surface.

It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing of the surface, some wear of the gilding is consistent with normal use and age. The company backstamp is visible on the rear face of the base. It measures 4.75" in height, 2.75" wide and the base curves to give a depth of 1".
