My Dad recently picked up this 30" DS Porcelain El Reco sign and neither of us have ever heard of this company. We found a set of Globe Lenses on ebay but that is all we have found for this company. Pretty nice sign. Let me know if you know anything about this company. Thanks, Jason.

Here is the sign my Dad Picked Up.

Eldorado Refining Co./K-T Oil Co. Sold out to American Petrofina in 1958. Stations were rebranded to the FINA brand later that year and into 1959.
