...you can't clean the paper Gulf label without messing it up...it is (or was) soaked with penetrating oil, which contains graphite...no way I know to clean it without ruining what has survived...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...
