Please refer to the KENWOOD Sign used on this forum
The Kenwood sign was originally given to Mr. Andy Eccles, who was employed as a gardener at Tittenhurst Park, by John Lennon in 1972." The date that Mr. Eccles received the Kenwood sign would be around the time that John and Yoko were preparing to leave Tittenhurst Park for America. The Kenwood sign originates from John Lennon's mock-Tudor estate in St. George's Hill, Weybridge, Surrey, approximately 20 miles SW of London, England. Kenwood was originally purchased on July 15'th, 1964, for 19,000 pounds, with an additional 30,000 pound being spent on renovations.
The cultural and historic significance of the Kenwood sign cannot be overstated and that John Lennon was in possession of the sign nearly four years after moving from Kenwood adds unique provenance.
The wooden sign, measuring 26.5 x 6.5 x 1”, is coated with a protective lacquer, much of which has worn off from exposure to the elements. The 3.5” high letters were router-cut to a depth of 1/8” and coated with a cream-colored paint. The two metal hanging eyelets are rusted. it was originally sold by Sotheby's in New York in December 1991.
