Petroleum Collectables by Mike Berry
Book DescriptionIn 1967 Beaulieu held the first autojumble in the United Kingdom and collectors of anything remotely connected with motoring found they had a huge market place. Early petrol pumps look very attractive, as do the globes that go on top. Enamel advertising signs are a popular collector s item and the petrol companies produced many of these. Petrol sold in two-gallon cans for many years; hundreds survive and, like stamps, are closely scrutinised by collectors for variation from standard. Now anything to do with petrol retailing is a collectable item and in this book Mike Berry outlines some of the thousands of pre-Second World War items which now come under the title of petroleum collectables or petroliana . About the authorMike Berry started collecting petrol cans in the early 1980s and now has Britain s largest collection. He then went on to collect oil cans, petrol pumps and enamel signs and now anything to do with petrol will find a place in his collection."
