Fantastic, large, oval Esso enamel sign

LJW ANTIQUES
When it comes to statement pieces of automobilia this large, oval Esso enamel sign has to be about as good as it gets. Measuring in at 1.5m wide it's a fantastic size and the oval shape helps it stand out from standard rectangular signage. In my opinion the condition is near perfect too - the red and blue has darkened down slightly and there are patches of enamel loss scattered across the sign, softening the otherwise vibrant colours and adding age and character to the piece.

Esso is an acronym for Eastern States Standard Oil and was used from 1932, this variant of the Esso logo was put into use in 1934 and this sign probably dates from the late 1930s/'40s and could be from the UK or America.

The sign is, as you'd expect, excellent quality and has a good weight to it, but can be hung easily using the original mounting holes - a real rarity in this size, the sign would make for the perfect piece of man-cave/garage/bar decor, but would look just as good as the statement piece in a home setting.

Overall the sign measures 1.5m wide x 99cm high.

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."
