Vintage 1950s Kendall Motor Oils Gas Station Enamel Metal Sign - Oval 28 Inches:
VINTAGE 1950s KENDALL MOTOR OILS GAS STATION ENAMEL METAL SIGN - OVAL 28 INCHES - DOUBLE-SIDED
This is a nice old Kendall Motor Oils gas station sign in nice condition - it is a double-sided sign with graphics on both sides. I don't think that this is a very common shape for a vintage Kendall Motor Oils sign - I was not able to find another oval shaped one like this on completed sales - most of the others are rectangular or circular in shape. This one measures 24 inches wide by 18 inches tall. It does have some chips particularly along the edges and the paint has faded some – please check the photos to see the condition of this item. Other than that this sign is in very good condition for its age with nice colors with little fading.
I am not exactly sure how old this sign is. My Dad picked it up at a flea market in Maybrook, NY back in the 1980s and he had it up in his attic until now. But judging from the look of the sign I think it is from around the 1950s.
