Are You Being Served? Grace Brothers Iconic Signage

Found! An absolute piece of iconic Australian history has just arrived in store at quintessential duckeggBLUE and we are beyond ourselves with excitement. This original Grace Brothers Retail Sign has been hidden away, gathering dust in a private collection for over 15 years. Made from timber, hand painted by renowned sign writer, H. Rousel, this sign dates back to early 1920’s and was hung in the original Broadway Grace Brothers store location in Sydney. At over 3.5metres in length, this sign makes for an excellent hallway or living area decoration. A quintessential find that is not to be missed!

Order In The House – quintessential Pigeon Hole Storage

Reclaimed from a famed Hat Maker “Chapellerie Brosson” from Rue d ‘Alsace Lorraine, Toulouse, this original French Hat Display Unit was salvaged from the makers retail store. Constructed from poplar timber, and painted with a French oak finish, here at quintessential duckeggBLUE we have restored these pigeon holes to their former glory. Dating from the 1910’s, they are in excellent condition and have huge storage potential with 7 drop down door units at the base and 21 individual pigeon holes. Order in your house? We certainly think so.
