Very Rare Example Smith Gasoline Advertising Fan. (MAKE OFFER)

Shipping is Priority Mail at Cost.

History:
In 1893 the C. G. Smith and Son Company was founded in Rockford to distribute paints, oils, and varnish. The transition to petroleum jobbing began early in the century when some of the few owners of horseless carriages in Rockford asked the Smiths to recommend oil for their cars. As the firm’s sales of automobile oils and greases expanded, additional family members joined the operation. Finally, in 1911, the Smith family bought the horses, wagons, and tanks from William M. Lawton and founded the Smith Oil and Refining Company.
Smith Oil was incorporated in 1918.

I see the “make offer” doesn’t work?


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.
