Awesome Shell globes Gary! I have only seen one of them in person before. Neat looking globe with the irregular shaped base. Lets see some more!

Here is a photo of two Cities Service Koolmotor globes. The one on the left is 3-piece glass and the one on the right is a cast 1-piece. I will keep digging and see what other photos of non-canteen shaped globes I can find.

Super pair of Koolmotors! I always wanted a one piece clover,,,maybe one day.
This art-deco globe from Fina was used in the 50's although it looks a little older by design

Here are a couple of square globes with a domed top. Roosevelt Oil Company was out of Mount Pleasant, Michigan and used these globes in the 1930s. Barnsdahl and maybe 1 or 2 other companies ever used these types of bodies.

A high percentage of the foreign globes ever used are of a non-canteen shape. let see some more. Thanks!

This 30's British globe was from Russian Oil Products, ROP was taken over by Texaco after WW2.

Two rare Standard Crowns I thought I would share with you. The one on the right is circa late 1910s, early 1920s, and has a mushroom shape unlike that of other crowns. Jewels are green. The word "Gasoline" is etched. The one on the left is one of four known and reminds me of a hot air balloon! It has a chimney cap and is circa 1910s. The word "Gasoline" is also etched. Both have the usual seven inch bases found on Standard Crowns.

Hi Everyone!

I have been on the road for the last several weeks and have not had a chance to post. I wanted to add just a few photos of unusual shaped globes before we start the next edition of Globe of the Month.

We have seen some photos of Shoebox globes and here are a few more. There are 14 varieties of Shoebox globes. All of them are from the Tydol / Tidex / Flying A family. The first photo shows a 1-piece Tydol Ethyl baked on Shoebox globe next to its 3-piece glass counterpart. It would stand to reason that there was also a Tydol 1-piece though none are known.

Shoebox globes are similar to conventional glass body globes in that there is a glass body with inserts. The inserts have notches on each side and are bolted to the glass body just like a regular 3-piece glass globe. There is a special rectangular attachment that bolts to the top of the pump and the globes fits onto the attachment. There is a 1/2" threaded rod that comes up throught the top center of the globe and there would be a brass retaining nut that would hold the globe in place.

I will add a few more photos of unusual shaped globes over the weekend and next week we will start a new topic. If you have any photos to share please take a few minutes and do it!

Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!

Lonnie Hop
