Texaco Porcelain Filling Station #1 (2002)
JUST 1 Available
Sixth in the Series, authentically detailed with lighted interior
The 2002 Limited Edition No. 1 Service Station is the sixth in the Texaco Filling Station series of hand crafted porcelain replicas. Opened in 1917, Texaco's first service station in Houston was located at 706 San Jacinto. It was a regular storefront and provided curb service and Texaco products to Houston motorists of that day. What was particularly unique about this station was that it was designated as a "service station" at a time when such stations were called "filling stations."
Each of the porcelain replicas manufactured is unique. Each piece is hand painted and assembled assuring that no two pieces are alike. By popular request, this piece has continued the Christmas theme.
