    My grandfather worked for Magnolia gas. This is from him. It lived in the attic for a number of years before my mom rescued it. It's 2 sided, and 30" in diameter. I'm trying to figure out how old it is. The items that I've found online have all been reproductions. Any help is appreciated.

      If you would like to find out more about the sign my email address is emderlie@aol.com. I have a book that dates these signs.

      Thanks. I figured it was from the 1920s. It's in excellent condition. I don't think it's ever been outside.

      The Magnolia Petroleum Company was an early twentieth century petroleum company in Texas and was founded on April 24, 1911 as a consolidation of several earlier companies. Standard Oil of New York (Socony) exchanged its stock for all of the Magnolia stock in December 1925 though it continued to operate as an affiliate of Socony. Later in 1959 Magnolia was fully incorporated into the Mobil division of Socony.

      Magnolia's Pegasus logo, clad in red, has been the emblem of Mobil since the 1930s.

      An unrelated Oklahoma-based company of the same name has been operating since 2008.

      Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information. I have an old photograph from 1930 of a motel in Albuquerque, NM selling Magnolia Petroleum Company products but don't know how to post it here.

      Thanks, Ron
