OXO Advertising Metal Wall Art (4 Sizes)
In 1899, the company introduced the trademark Oxo for a cheaper version. The origin of the name remains unknown, however, presumably it comes from the word ox. Alternatively, it may have been a mark made on crates of the extract, at the docks. In 1908 Oxo sponsored the London Olympic Games (despite claims by Coca Cola to being the ‘first’ commercial sponsor of the Games) and supplied athletes with Oxo drinks to fortify them. The first Oxo cubes, produced in 1910, further increased Oxo’s popularity, as the cubes were cheaper than the liquid. During the first half of the 20th century, Oxo was promoted through issues of recipes, gifts and sponsorships before fading into the background as a part of the fabric of British life in the latter parts of the century.
This early advertising sign announces ‘Oxo, makes cooking so easy’, the fellow is certainly making it look effortless! This lovely Nostalgic advertising sign would look just the picture in a vintage styled kitchen or cafe.
Your OXO Advertising Metal Wall Art will come with pre drilled holes in each corner for easy fixing. We recommend that your Metal Wall Art is suitable for Indoor hanging (preferably out of direct sunlight) or in a shaded area outside. These signs are NOT UV treated, but you can apply a suitable UV resistant spray post purchase to prolong it’s vibrant colours for a longer period of time ( available from most DIY stores and online ). Signs placed in direct sunlight will naturally fade over time. However, placing your sign in the right place will ensure years of happy viewing.
