Union Oil-76-tba-tires Porcelain Sign-gas Station-pump-#1 For Sale
You are offerding on an OLD and ORIGINAL "Tires" Porcelain sign that would have been on a Union Oil Gas Station. This sale is only for the "TIRE" sign. The other signs shown, are in additional sales. Some of them might not be listed until next week. This is a great opportunity to own all three major "TBA" (tires, batteries & Accessories) porcelain signs used by Union Oil. I can combine shipping if you win additional sales.
The Union Oil of Calif. Co. was headquartered in San Francisco. I believe that these particular signs were used beginning in the 1940's.
This sign is 48 inches wide and 5-1/4 inches tall. The color of the sign is a vibrant orange, with cobalt blue letters, outlined in white. When you rub your fingers across the letters, you can feel the heavy shelving (thickness of the porcelain layers) and the gloss is excellent. There are three mounting holes in the center portion of this sign. Some small nicks and scratches around the outer edge of the sign, and mounting holes as shown in the photos. The worst ones are below the "R" on the bottom edge, and one on the right edge. very minor flea bites and scratches in other areas, but hard to see. This sign is very nice, you won't be dissapointed with your purchase. It has been in my private collection for approx. 20 years.
Photos were hard to obtain, with the gloss reflecting the sunlight. I shot photos from several different angles in order to show the true condition of the sign.
I give a full refund if the item sold does not match my description. If you need additional info, please ask prior to offerding. I do not end my sales early, as it's not fair to the other buyers. Please do not ask.
According to the USPS shipping calculator, the shipping cost will be in the amount of $25.00 and will be paid for by the winning buyer. I will be happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
