I have a question for all the advanced
Pennzoil collectors on the forum. I have
a nice looking 1930s Pennzoil clock that
was manufactured by Gill Glass (Gillco),
that was a part of their "Be Oil Wise"
advertising campaign.
I was wondering if anyone has seen another
of these clocks before?:


Thank you!

Thanks for all the kind comments on my clock,
I definitely don't wish to sell it, thanks.
I'm curious to find out if someone might
have another example out there somewhere.
When this was found, someone had painted
over the entire center advertising circle
with white paint years ago! Guess they
didn't sell Pennzoil anymore, and didn't
want to advertise it! Someone (not myself)
got a surprise when they removed that paint!
