This is a very old Shell porcelain service station sign. Probably out of the 30's. It would have been on the roof of the service station as shown in the photograph that I will include with the sign. These are extremely rare. I have a light fixture mounted in the back, and it hung on the wall in my home. I used a yellow bug light bulb in it, and it cast out a yellow glow around the perimeter of the shell. The pull chain hung out the bottom through one of the mounting holes in the shell. As you can see in the pictures, there is porcelain loss in the center, and around the edges. It just adds to it character. There is a bend in the back brace, that does not effect the way it hangs. It measures about 24" x 24" x 8" deep. I will charge $50 shipping and handling to the lower 48.

GOOD LUCK.

The porcelain loss around the edges is very minimal, and mostly where the back brace mounting holes are.The first picture is cut off for some reason, and the top is very good.
