Enamel Signs, Petrol Pumps, Petroliana & Automobilia

Welcome to Petroliana.co.uk

   The purpose of this website is to share with other Petroliana collectors and enthusiasts the items and information available regarding our hobby. Little is currently published either on paper or the internet covering early petrol pumps, globes, motoring enamel advertising signs and associated petroleum items.

  This is surprising given the great interest in anything antique and the similar interest in old cars and associated automobilia. This website is largely based on photographs of the 1500 plus items in my personal collection that I have assembled and restored over the last eight years. It has the potential to expand to hold and share many of the special and unusual Petroliana items in other people�s collections. In time it is intended to add drawings and details of British and some European pumps to assist enthusiasts with their own restorations.

  I hope you enjoy my efforts and after you have viewed the site I would appreciate your comments using the �contact� button at the top right of this page.

IT'S NOW LIVE!!! Just launched is the "Repro's" section of the Petroliana website. To access it just click on the "Repro" button on the top right of THIS Home page.
The idea is to create a reference section for buyers, sellers and auctioneers, to reduce the numbers of petroliana items (particularly enamel signs),which are reproduction items being sold or bought in the belief that they are original pre-war pieces. These items are often deliberately "distressed" to appear much older. This has been happening for many years, thus now those possibly reselling signs etc., are often unaware that the items are not genuine.
All collectors can help in creating this valuable reference. Just go to the "Repro" section & click on the "UPLOAD" button.
