It is the 7th and the sign of the month will be Mobil Oil. This will include way back to Socony and Vacuum so the gargoyles will all be there as well as the flying horses. Anyone with any information as to when Socony Vacuum was bought out by Mobil or any topic associated with this please post the information for everyone to enjoy. Please try to give information to include porcelain, painted, tin, paper carboard and dimensions if possible. Lets make this a great sign of the month.
My first sign is a double sided porcelain flange sign 14x24 inches. I took this in trade for some work in my auto reapir shop. Tried to offer cash before that but they opted for repair work which actually was worth less. Go figure. Ted :

The Mobiloil trademark belonged to Vacuum Oil Company. Vacuum used the Gargoyle logo. Socony owned the pegasus logo. Socony and Vacuum merged in 1931.
