Saw that on craigslist. Cool pump but man is it rotted out. Too far gone for me. But that's right, 276 with an attachment I personally have never seen before. Doesn't look to be an American (the company...not the country!).
I’ve done quite a bit of fiberglass casting over the years in automotive and boating and I must say that while the interior of the globe is quick matt work the exterior is very fine work and the letters on the word “Shell” have a raised border around them. Whoever did this work must have had a hard cast mold to lay the fiberglass onto and they MUST have known what they were doing as the work on display is very well excecuted and quite pronounced. The other issue is that the YELLOW on the globe doesn’t seem to be painted on, it’s as if the fiberglass matting was yellow or the resin used in the process was tinted yellow? The letters on the word shell have been painted in.
I’m not really sure what to think either, definetly a keeper.
Many many years ago I stumbled across these at an old gas station that was falling in. I am not sure what the make or the era would be although I have an idea. In all my 30+ years of collecting I have never seen oil tanks mainly of this size and configuration. Any info would be appreciated. As the pics show, they are in various stages is disassembly/rebuilding
I have this two sided 6 inch x 18 inch esso motor oil sign. It's not for sale but I'm curious what would be this value. It's in pretty good condition it has only few scratches and stains. I couldn't find this sign from the internet so I logged in to this site to see if you would know something about this sign.
