Thanks for posting the photo of the Redline globe Gary! It seems like the majority of foreign globes are "non-canteen" shaped. Here is a photo of a Shell clam shaped globe from Mexico next to its American counterpart. The second photo shows a European Esso oval and a European Shell globe that were sold at the Matthews Auction last weekend in Peotone, Illinois. Lets see some more Shells, Crowns, ovals, and more Foreign globes. Thanks for posting!

Here's my Swedish SHELL globe, a little different than most, with the special "S".

Great globes! Would it be possible to paint a brand on a light globe such as this? It's about 8 inches tall. Would be pretty cool.

These were at an auction in NY quite a few years ago.
Did not sell for repro dollars but that's what I'm told they are...

The 1-piece cast globes with the star are reproductions. Webers (out of Texas) sells repo globes, signs, and pump parts and had some of these made up back in the 80s, at least that is the story I have heard from several people.

I'll dig up a few more photos of "non-canteen" shaped globes out later tonight and post them. Lets see some ovals, Crowns, Shells, and some more foreign globes. Thanks to everyone who posted so far!

Here are a few photos of "fish bowl" 1-piece globes. I am not sure who coined that term. Other than the fact that they are round they really would not work the best for a fish bowl!

Most round globes are generic with names like Filtered Gas, Guaranteed Measure, Full Measure, Etc. The globes in the second and third photos are from the Bruce Bednar collection and are all pretty rare. There are very few round globes known to exist with company names on them.

Take a few minutes to share your photos of unusual shaped globes. Thanks!

Here's one more photo that Bob Drake (aka Lastgas) sent me some time ago. In Bob's own words "This globe is so ugly that it's kinda neat". I think it might be foreign.

Hi Guys & Gals;

Here are a couple more Auction photos. The Colonial is a flat 8 sided lense on a unique metal body. Colonial Beacon (Boston, Mass.) used this type of globe in the 1920s and they are quite rare.

Texaco used the star shaped 1-piece in their Australian market. Most foreign globes are not that popular here in the U.S. but this one given the Texaco name and the fact that it is just a great globe to look at brings some pretty serious money when one sells here in the states.

I'll keep looking for more photos of non-canteen shaped globes and in the meantime if you have anything to add to this post please take a few minutes and contribute. Thanks!

Lonnie Hop

Looking good everyone!

We have seen a couple of Cities Service clover globes. Here is a group shot that I got a several years ago of the six different Cities Service black and white clover globes. There are 13 different clover globes when you factor in different body styles and the 1-piece clover globes they used.

Lets see some more ovals, foreign globes, and non-canteen shaped globes. Thanks!

Lonnie

I've also seen the star shaped globe on the cover of some New Zealand Texaco maps I had the pleasure to see at Peotone.
