Shell

Shell, is an Anglo–Dutch multinational oil and gas company incorporated in the United Kingdom and headquartered in the Netherlands. The Royal Dutch Shell Group was created in February 1907 through the merger of two rival companies - Royal Dutch Petroleum Company and the "Shell" Transport and Trading Company Ltd of the United Kingdom. The name Shell is linked to The "Shell" Transport and Trading Company. In 1833, the founder's father, also Marcus Samuel, founded an import business to sell seashells to London collectors. When collecting seashell specimens in the Caspian Sea area in 1892, the younger Samuel realized there was potential in exporting lamp oil from the region and commissioned the world's first purpose-built oil tanker, the Murex, to enter this market; by 1907 the company had a fleet. Many of these posters use the same slogan "you can be sure of Shell" written on the white margin and are created by different artists. You will also discover other type of posters, with artists like Edward McKnight Kauffer, Yunge, Jean d'Ylen, Verhaegen, and more !
