Genuine vintage London Routemaster Bus Blind, destination KINGS CROSS.

These rare blinds are stunning in their simplicity. The familiar place names conjure an air of true British nostalgia, and special memories for all. Whether it’s a trip to London from a foreign land, or a lifetime spent living in or visiting our capital city.

The blinds date from the 1960s through to the 1990s. As genuine articles they have been used, and stored over the decades. The odd small crease, smudge of dirt, or watermark does appear on some blinds. This is testament to their authenticity, and only serves to add their character.

All blinds are professionally framed using an acid free black mount and a matt black square edge wooden frame. The single destination blinds measure approximately 1130mm x 250mm x 12mm.

I use a process call 'drymounting' when framing which ensures that the blind does not wrinkle over time behind the glass.

For two years now I have been framing using a glazing product called styrene. This is an extremely high quality product used by professional framers as an alternate to glass. Even my framer and I have difficulty in telling the difference between the two materials at times!
The benefits are primarily that styrene survives transit and sadly glazed items often do not. It also prevents fading, unlike glass, which ensures the prolonged beauty of your framed bus blind. I have only ever received very positive feedback from my customers about styrene but if you do have any quesions than please do message me.

I have a stock of framed blinds ready to ship, but a vast collection which can be framed to order.

Please allow 7 days for delivery for ready framed blinds, and 14 days for those framed to order.
