Sinclair Motor Oil Vintage Porcelain Sign: Mellowed 100 Million Years
This 1930's era Sinclair Motor Oil vintage porcelain sign is significant in that it marks one of the earliest appearances of Sinclair Oil Company's trademark apatosaurus. This extremely rare, and highly sought after Sinclair Motor Oil vintage porcelain sign is a double sided, lollipop style curbside sign that would have been used as advertising at gas stations and auto shops in the era. Not only is the sign original, but it is still on its original cast iron stand.
The sign is a set on the extremely hard to find red and white background and says "SINCLAIR" in bold white lettering with a black drop shadow outline. Just below, it reads "PENNSYLVANIA MOTOR OIL" in red lettering. The lower half of the sign features a black apatosaurus dinosaur walking over a tar pit with the words "MELLOWED 100 MILLION YEARS" below the dinosaur in white lettering. The sign maintains all of its original wear, but is in excellent condition for a sign that is nearly 90 years old.
