Rolls-Royce, enameled metal sign in perfect condition, from the modern era around 1980 1990.

The sign is a reproduction of those used in the USA from 1933 onwards by the official Rolls-Royce of America network. From the beginning, the color of the Rolls-Royce emblem was red but, in 1933, the company decided to switch to black as a sign of mourning death of Sir. Henry Royce, as reported by various official sources and not. However, few know that equally official documents and testimonies reveal another reason behind the change in color and that Royce's death was only the pretext to accelerate the change already decided before the death of one of the founders. The reason for the color change was only a purely aesthetic matter because the red did not match the colors of the Rolls-Royce cars required by their owners. Black was chosen because is the color that best matches most of the other colors.
