Hello Everyone

My name is Stephen

Years ago I obtained a porcelain Texaco Marine Oil sign from a relative that worked as a Texaco salesman in the 40’s thru 70’s. I understand it’s is a rare and desired item for collectors. I’m hoping you can educate me on the sign and collecting in general. I’ve attached some pictures and would love to know what you think about it

Hey Stephen,
I use a powder cleaner called Zud that is really good on porcelain. It is good to clean rust spots and also shine up the porcelain.
