When Mobiloil was first established in 1911 they used the Gargoyle as their trademark and this ran until 1931 when they adopted the now iconic Pegasus. This enamel sign is an interesting, early piece of automobilia that's hard to find in any format.

Measuring in at 1.2m wide, this particular example is one of the largest formats that the Gargoyle signage is generally found in. Condition is reasonable considering it's age - there are some losses particularly along the upper and right hand edges as well as some discolouration (streaking) to red of the gargoyle motif. As with most early enamel signs the quality is good, with a generous use of materials - thanks to this the colours remain bright, the surface generally retains a decent gloss and the piece still creates an instant impact.

Overall the sign measures 1.2m wide by 80cm high.
