This Michelin tyre pressure chart represents a well preserved and fairly unusual piece of automobilia. Produced in 1968 by 'Art France' the main section including the 'fun' Bibendum graphic at the top is made from enamel. The screen printed aluminium chart is attached to this with split pins.
The aluminium chart has inevitably been far more susceptible to it's exposure to the elements than the enamel part of the sign and although some details are still faintly visible it's generally illegible. I did think that the chart could be taken off the board (only a couple of the split pins remain so it could easily be removed without causing damage) and the reverse of it painted with blackboard paint and re-attached for a quirky workshop 'to-do' list. However as I've only encountered a few examples like this and they've all been missing the chart section entirely I've left it 'as found' for now.

Aside from the obvious fading to the chart section the sign remains in generally good condition - there is some enamel loss around the fixing holes, but otherwise the colours remain strong and the surface retains a good gloss.

The sign is 83.5cm high, 34cm wide and has a 1cm return.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
