Valve Ephemera: Marconi Valve Boxes

1960's Valve box
One would never have thought that red and green would work together quite so well.  Strange mixture of the more modern textual Marconi logo and the old "across the world" with script logo.
1950's Valve box
Plain diagonal banner, whichever way you look at it.  As this valve box is not in too good a condition, I wouldn't rely on the colour match much.  The lopsided effect is an optical illusion.

Valve Ephemera: Marconi Catalogues

No date anywhere in this catalogue, my best guess is 1952 from the "752" reference number.  From the basic "star-corner" design, I would say it may be earlier.  Printing quality is fuzzy at best and hence the reversed-out green text on black does not work at all.
