This large, rectangular Esso sign is a little bit different to the majority of the company's mid-century advertising which generally appeared in a square format and would usually feature 'PETROL', 'DIESEL', 'GARAGE' etc beneath the main logo in large, bold lettering. This absence of this makes this sign pleasantly simple.

Produced in enamel by Art France it appears to be dated to May of 1953. The condition is generally very good - there are a few patches of enamel loss across the sign but nothing that overly affects the main logo, all the original mounting holes are present and secure and the colours remain strong and bright.

The sign measures 1m wide by 80cm 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."
