1963 Double-sided porcelain ESSO service station sign. It is in its original ring and comes with two styles of hanging brackets. 7- 4 ½ x 5 outside to outside. Sign is in very good condition, but does have some minor imperfections. There are 7 to 8 chips about the size of a dime or smaller; there are a number of chips the size of a pencil eraser or smaller; and, there are a couple of very small dents. Also, the ring bows a bit at the bottom—not sure if this because the bolt is tightened too much? PLEASE SEE PHOTOS FOR EXACT CONDITION. There are two sets of hanging brackets: one set to fasten around a round arm and one to fasten to the bottom of a square arm (such as a Pressure Treated 6 x 6). One of the round brackets needs to be opened some (I dont have the tools to do it). And, the cleats that secure the opening are missing. The ring is solid but needs to be prepped and painted (I used POR 15 on mine before painting). Of course, you can always just hang it with chains as I did to take photos OR even take it out of the ring and attach to a wall. Minor issues aside, this sign is in much better condition than most you find. And, most come without the ring and bracket. To show the signs potential, I have included photos of another one I have just like it that is hanging at my mock station and is illuminated at night. My wife and I really enjoy sitting on our deck and looking out at it. Will be happy to answer any questions.
