Vintage Shell Gas Sign

The Vintage Shell Gas Sign has a unique history. In 1833 a trader in London ran a shop that sold antiques, curios, and sea shells. Victorians liked to decorate items with shells. He travelled to The Caspian Sea to find exotic shells. Here he saw an opportunity for exporting oil to the far east. In 1882 the first oil tanker was commisioned. Fifteen years later the Shell company merged with its Dutch rival.

Around the turn of the century the Pecten seashell was choosen as the emblem. This was later replaced with the scallop shell because it is easier to recognize. The Vintage Shell Gas Sign has evolved over time from a sketch of a shell on a yellow background to its now clear image.
