Unique Lubri-Gas Motor Fuel Metal Sign with Camel Graphics
Here is a very unique and hard to find Lubri-Gas sign with a fantastic image of a camel advertising "The Correct Motor Fuel". Sign measures 27.5" X 19".
The overall condition of this metal petroliana sign is fair - near good. I say this because the advertising itself is some part of a screening or sticker affixed to a thin metal backing. I'm under the impression that this is how they were all made as I know this sign is original and quite old. As seen in the pictures, there is extensive peeling on the left side over the writing "Protects thee Motor" and more in the middle of the sign over "The Correct Motor Fuel" and slightly above in the "Your" in "As it Powers Your Motor". The peeling is rough to the touch, but the rest is affixed to the metal. There are other areas of peeling and crazing throughout the piece, however the camel graphic is largely intact along with what I estimate is 75% of the sign. There are two mounting holes with slight denting as this was indeed hung. I'm lead to believe that these condition issues were common to the sign and expected with the use beings the advertising appears to be very similar to decal process. At any rate - it has largely survived and remains a very unique sign that displays very well. This sign is perfect for those who collect antique gas pumps, automotive and gas collectibles.
