The crown itself is nearly flawless! There is one obvious chunk out of the center just above the "PO" in "Polarine". And there are a number of small chips around the edges and the corners as would be expected in a nearly 100 year old piece of porcelain. The frame is not original. It is a p rofessionally made modern replica.Brass screws around the perimeter are also modern but the brass screws holding the thermometer tube in are all original. I taped the tube in place as the wire fasteners had become so brittle they all but fell apart to the touch. The porcelain on this thermometer is absolutely brilliant!
The shelving is very heavy and the colors are as bold and bright as day one! A great example of an investment grade piece of advertising. This gorgeous sign is just waiting to become the centerpiece of your Standard Oil collection! Get it while it's here! Thanks for looking and Good Luck!THIS SIGN IS QUITE HEAVY AND VERY BIG.
