Fire places, then during the WW2 they made oil cans and ammo boxes ,, then moving into other things including motor oil. The company is still going today. This sign is Very well made and Originally from a small. Also repairing all types of heaters.The sign has great colour with the blue background is very striking against the red lettering. With some natural wear as you can see, but still in very good strong condition. With some cracks, wear /rubs/knocks to the frame, the corners mainly of frame. And hand painted picture in places has some paint loss, paint splashes /marks/rubs/knocks, etc,, but its mainly on the frame.
