Attention car collectors, here is a vintage porcelain Pirelli tire stand with their Championship Shield just below the logo name. In 1946 a trade-mark in the form of a championship shield was designed and used up to the early 1970’s. Although they still use their trademark yellow and red colors today, this early design has the Pirelli name in white against the red banner and yellow background. Today they use the red letters against a plain yellow background.
The Pirelli tire stand is a porcelain over steel tire stand that is adjustable to accommodate the various tire sizes Pirelli would display in dealerships. This is the perfect accessory to display your Pirelli tire alongside your sports car. It also would be the perfect gift item for a car collector or racer.
