Huge Vintage Esso Tiger Advertising Board

Huge Vintage Esso Tiger Advertising Board


'Put a Tiger in Your Tank' Retro Advertising Board

Dating from the 1960s/1970s period.

Would have originally stood outside an Esso petrol station and was known as one of the most famous advertising campaigns of all time.


This is quite a rare piece as most of these would have been destroyed.


Standing at 6' he certainly is very tall! Made up of two cut out sheets of board held together by bolts to a large plank of wood running the length of him at the back.


It seems to me that the hard wearing vibrant colours are built up by stencils in layers of paint.


He would be a great addition to any motor related collection, would make a great statement for an interior design project or would look great in a commercial setting and if desired the message he is holding up could be personalised to whatever floats your boat.


Measuring: 183cm high (221cm including pole at the bottom) X roughly 125cm wide at widest measurement.


The board is in great vintage condition. There are a few knocks etc around the edges and some general wear and tear but considering it's age and use it in great order and any wear and tear does not detract from the overall look of the piece. Please see photos.
