The articles left behind at Cape Evans and at Cape Royds have always intrigued me, and were the inspiration behind the creation of this reproduction concept of a Colman's crate from the 1907 British Antarctic Expedition, which can be found at both Scott and Shackleton's Huts. This item was entirely hand painted.

Beautiful. Shipped wonderfully. It was wrapped nicely so I didn’t even unwrap it before gifting it. I was honestly shocked at the quality and time that went into handcrafting this vintage sign. Look no further if you are looking for a vintage sign. Thank you VASSDesign - my dad kept picking it up to look at how beautiful it is.

Love love love my TARDIS sign. It fits perfect above my bathroom door! I also got a Sherlock art piece from VASSDesign for my Sherlock-inspired break room and it’s perfect as well. GREAT quality on both pieces. VASSDesign was nice enough to rush my order since I needed it quickly and I really appreciated that. Thanks again so very much!

I purchased this sign for my sailor husband as a "just because" surprise, and he loves it! The workmanship is wonderful, and we look forward to choosing the perfect spot for it in our new home. Thank you!!

Incredible. Looks very interesting and rustic. I’ve bought 4 of the recruitment posters and have them like a theme in my house now. Awesome communication. Shipped promptly. Packaged well and in a way that I’d expect prevents damage. Very happy overall.
