Of course the world of Vintage Posters is closely tied into that of enamel signs.

I was lucky enough this week to visit the facility of Pemco in Belgium (now owned by Prince Minerals) this place has been making the ‘frits’ which are used in the enamel stoving process for many years.

In their foyer area were a couple of extremely nice enamel signs
