Vintage Rowntree's Pastilles Sign: Original British Porcelain Advert
This is an original, 24 inch wide by 9 inch tall, vintage Rowntree's Pastilles sign. It is a thick, heavy single sided porcelain enamel, and is a horizontally oriented, rectangular strip sign. It was originally used as advertising at grocery stores and markets in the 1930's, as advertising for the popular British fruit candies. English author and podcaster Darren Woodhead says, "Love Rowntrees, going to buy a pack tomorrow!". It has a primarily navy blue background, with a yellow stripe just inside the outer edge. The words "Rowntree's Pastilles" are in white lettering, and there is a logo just above with an insignia of "Makers To H.M. The Queen" in the upper area of the sign. Like all of our signs, it is in original, unrestored condition. This sign is in excellent condition overall, as pictured, and is an especially clean example of a now over 90-year-old sign. We believe in keeping signs in unrestored condition, because these blemishes are part of the history and story of the item.

Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles History
Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles originated in Tyneside, England in 1881, where they are still made to this day.
At Rowntree's factory in Fawdon, Tyneside in 1881, Rowntree introduced Fruit Pastilles, and the product proved to be a great success, accounting for about 25 percent of the company's tonnage by 1887. In September 2020, Nestlé announced their intention to make Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles suitable for vegans after many years of requests from consumers.
Tubes of Fruit Pastilles are wrapped in foil-backed paper (paper on the inside, foil on the outside) with a paper wrapper over the top. The paper wrapper is green in colour with "Fruit Pastilles" written along the front in large lettering. Along the bottom of the lettering there are pictures of different types of fruit all relating to the flavours within the packet, The top bears the "Rowntree's" brand name. Fruit Pastilles come in a small pack weighing 52.5 grams (1.85 oz), containing 14 pastilles, but are also available in larger bags weighing 180 grams (6.3 oz). They are also available in boxes and larger round cardboard tubes.
