Can anyone tell me what this brass shell emblem went on? The guy I bought it from thought it was a fixture in a Shell bathroom, but I'm not so sure...

It is heavy for it's size, and is threaded at the bottom.

Can't help you out with the emblem, but you won't have to worry about it if you keep taking pics while driving 43 mph without your seatbelt on!


I offer quart can re-lidding, can rolling, lid stamping, and dent removal.

Looked like an airbag light to me. Chevy truck? Probably the module under the drivers seat.

Wish I could help you on the emblem.

I'm still new to this but, it kind of looks like a drawer pull to me.

It was probably attached to a base with some kind of a trophy, or a commerative item.

It's the end piece on a curtain rod, circa 1930's/40's. That's why it's got the paint on the back end. <..< >..> =..=

RE: paint drippings.

It is red paint, which is consistent with shell colors... (yellow and red)

Will call your guy 47reotravis and see what he knows...

Thanks to all who have hazarded a guess.
