Shell Gas and Oil Enamel Thermometer Porcelain Sign
Back in the day of no cell phones, people relied in classic glass encasing mercury thermometers to know the air temperature. Many automotive companies combined brand signage with a thermometer to create a dual pupose wall hanging that was displayed in service centers worldwide.
This is a very high quality porcelain on steel(vitreous enamel) sign using 11 guage steel (1/8" thick, 3mm). It is a new sign made with the same techniques of the lost art of oven fired enamel sign making. Using modern day materials it is a superior product. Note the fine edge detail of each color, no bleed. This sign is also convex in shape, just as the originals.
- Each enamel plaque is hand crafted and carries its own character and signature.
- Dual temperature scale in both Celcius and Farenheit
- Each color is applied and baked separatly before the next color, resulting in an embossed detail
