Presented here are 2 Texaco Oil items that I believe were given to company employees, executives, contractors or vendors. The first is a weather station, made in the U.S.A. by Honeywell. It measures about 6&1/2 inches tall by 7 inches at the widest point. It has 3 separate guages that measure temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. It has a brushed gold metal face with black printing, and and a black, plastic case, with a hole for hanging on the wall, as well as holes from which you can access the adjustment screws. It seems to be in working order, but other than the temperature, I can't vouch for its accuracy. The back is marked, "Minneapolis-Honeywell Reg. Co. Minneapolis, Minnesota Made In USA, Type N9A". It has a clear plastic face cover and is in excellent condition with the exception of minor wear on the back of the case. Circa 1960-70. The second item is newer, dated 1996. It's a combination clock and paper weight. The face of the clock has black and white images of old oil rigs. The gold plaque reads, "TEPI....1996, A Time to Remember". Its in a nice, heavy, solid walnut case, and is slanted so the clock can be read while lying flat as a paper weight on a desk. The clock isn't working. I'm sure it needs a battery, but the protective black felt would have to be removed from the back.
I currently have several pieces of vintage advertising in my shop, including other gas & oil items, and am happy to combine shipping. To see them all, type the word, "advertising" in the California Girls search box at the top of this page
If you are ordering more than 1 item from my shop, wait to pay until I send back an invoice with the combined shipping discount.
