Sadly, alot of the times that i get a package in the mail from n e-bay seller, im not as happy, (i guess thats the feeling) as i should be. After being disapointed several times, it just takes that "Santa Claus" feeling, & turns it into a lump of coal. Not this time!! Funny thing is, this sign isnt even "branded", not even sure its a service station attendant, its not even porcelain, theres something missing it originally came with (see pict.#4). I DONT EVEN CARE!!!~!!! Tin embossed with only a few minor scratchs. 24" W. X 22" T. If you do have some info. about this piece, (and it doesnt take away my "kid-in-a-candy-store feeling"),then please let me know. Just dont be the Grinch! Also, doesnt he (kinda) look like my C.W. user icon???

    Wow, pretty awesome! It looks like a gas station attendant to me- I can't think of anything else...
    It will look wonderful wherever you put it. And he kinda does look like your avatar. What is that, by the way?

    Sorry Milie on close inspection he has a cavity in back molar :-)
    Awesome sign I remember seeing him as a youngster . Like all aboard or a crossing guard ? Awesome sign . Good for you to get what you hoped for on ebay . We have all been disappointed at times in what we get .But we have all had that wow moment it arrives much better than we thought I love that ! Good buy !

  5. Manikin Manikin, 3 years ago

    it could be a sign for sunoco, sunoco used this yellow and blue colors during the 1950's
  11. mikielikesigns2 mikielikesigns2, 3 years ago
    U are right ho, u 2 fifties, but you would think a major oil corp. wouldnt spend a cent without an adv. tax write-off? Im sure the answer is in the "missing piece" , the two slots in the hat!

    apparently it was for atlantic oil company and there was also a feet section, I think bot parts were screwed to a shelf

    I know it's an old feed, but this is actually the top part of a Walker Mufflers sign from the 1950s. I have the entire sign in my collection. Very fun piece and harder to come by.
