We came across this unusual pump in preparation for an upcoming live auction we are conducting on Saturday, May 12. The pump has an external steel frame with inset porcelain panels in red, white, and blue. The internals are present, but I don't believe them to be functional. The dial is marked "SOHIO" and "THE STANDARD OIL CO. (OHIO)". I could not find any other markings or labels indicating a manufacturer, so I don't know if Sohio made these for their own stations' use or if they were made by someone else. The way the dial is marked makes me believe they were made exclusively for Sohio, but I could be wrong.
Any information that could add to my knowledge about this pump would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions for me about the pump or the upcoming auction, please message me and I will respond as quickly as I can. I know this is short notice, but I didn't really have time to study the pump much until today when we started setting up the sale.
