Hi Everyone!

After being away from Globe of the Month for way to long, it is time to start up again! For this installment we are going to be looking at "Unusual shaped globes." Any globe that is not the traditional shaped Canteen style can be posted in this category. Crowns, Eagles, Shells, ovals, Fishbowl shaped, iregular shaped 1-piece plastics, and many foreign globes will fit here. If you have them post them!

I will start it off with an actual drawing / piece of artwork from Cinnicinati Advertising. The drawing is the actual size of what would become the Aro Motor Fuel lense and shows what color each part of the globe lense would be. If you look at the upper part of the lense on the drawing you can see that it calls for a light blue background. On the lower part of the drawing it says that it was changed from white to light blue on 3-29-61. Obviously both of these colors were used in actual production. These globes were used by the Anderson Refining Company. However, I do not know anything about the company or where they were from.

Why not take a few minutes tonight and share your photos with the Oldgas Community. Thanks!

Lonnie & Aaron Hop

With friends like Richard ........

Just kidding! Thanks for the post of the Eagles! Richard has an example of each of the three different Eagles pictured. From left to right are the detailed version. the medium detailed one, and the blunt nose Eagle. Eagles were made for 12-13 years and there were a lot of different molds used so there are some other minor variations but these are the three main versions. Somewhere I have a picture of the three different Eagles showing their backside that I took at Iowa Gas a few years ago. When I find it I'll post it. Keep those pictures coming. Thanks!

Here is a picture of the three different Eagles from the backside. The one on the left is the Blunt Nose version. It has the least detail to the feathers and a large rounded blunt nose. It also has higher "shoulders" on his back. The middle Eagle is the medium detailed version. It has more detail than the blunt and has finer features to the feathers. It also has a noticeably shorter base. The one on the right is the detailed Eagle and as you can see the feathers are more raised and there is more detail to the feathers, particularily to the back of his neck. It also has a smaller and more pointed beak.

Keep those photos coming, lets see some Crowns and Shells!

I guess my two crowns are the only contribution I can make to this post. Both are common globes and not in any of the sought after colors, but they were both given to me for free from a local jobber who still had them sitting around.
I would like to see some posts of originals in the hard to find colors. I'm sure we have a few Standard collectors out there who have them!
Thanks,
Darin

The Peotone, Illinois Show and Auction is coming up this weekend and there will be some photo ops there of unusual shaped globes. Before I leave I wanted to post this one. I took this photo a number of years ago at old time collector Bruce Bednars house. Check out the Simms cone shaped globe in the lower center of the photo. Simms was a Dallas, Texas Company and I do not know of another company that used anything like it. Keep those photos coming!

Here are a few "non-canteen" shaped globes that I got photos of at the Matthews Auction in Peotone last weekend. The raised letter Crowns were used in the 30s and are fairly uncommon. The glass flame shaped globe was actualy used on the top of Standard signs in front of the station. I have photos somewhere of some other colored Crowns that I will dig out this weekend. In the meantime lets see some of your unusual shaped globes. Thanks!

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!

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!

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!

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

Hi Everyone;

I hope that Santa (or your wife or kids!) were good to you for Christmas!

I want to post a few more photos of unusual shaped globes before we move on to our next feature. There are 4 types of oval shaped globes. There are the 1-piece like the Interstate etched globe in the picture. Take note how fat and squatty it is compared to the others. There are very few companies that used oval 1-piece globes.

Next there is the 3-piece glass oval. These lenses are notched and are about an inch wider than the capco oval lenses so if you find a pair of oval lenses with notches you will need to find a glass body to put them on. These globes are also somewhat uncommon. There are less than 20 different oval 3-piece glass globes known.

Next is the oval capco body globe. There are at least 60 different kinds oval capco globes known and there are likely many more.

There are also several different 1-piece plastic ovals globes. It is to cold and the snow is to deep here in Michigan to go out to my building to take a picture. Maybe tommorow!

If you have any globes to share please take a few minutes and do so. Thanks!

Lonnie

World famous Mobil Collector and all round good guy Richard Weir (a.k.a. Pegusas) emailed me wondering if the Pugh Clipper globe was associated in any way with the Clipper globe with the airplane. While the font and the speedlines on the 2 globes are similar I do not believe they were related in anyway. If you look at the close up photos you can see there is some difference in the letters and speedlines.

Pugh was a Racine, Wisconsin marketer that is still in business today with marina and shipyard in Racine. The Clipper with the airplane was a West Coast marketer that later became part of Mobil.

Here are a few more oval body globes. These are 1-piece plastic. If you look at the side view of the North Star globes you will see two variations. The one on the left as well as the Elreco and Supreme are 2 separate molded halves that are glued togather. The North Star on the right is a plastic formed body that has a face glued to each side.

If you study the Elerco globe photo you will see that the Supreme was once an Elreco globe. Someone sanded the letters off and painted Supreme on the globe. Seems like a lotta work to change the brand of gas you sell.

I will post a few more photos over the next couple of days. Yes Mark (Gulfiend) I will get to some Dixie photos!

This has been a great thread, I particularly like the Foreign globes. There are countless Foreign globes and a large number of them are unusual shaped. If any one has any more globes to post please take a few minutes and do so. Thanks!

I should have put this photo with the Pugh globes Sunday night. There are not a lot of globes of any kind that have station attendents on them. I have always liked the Wareco globes. Lots of detail in the attendent.

The Ware family started out in Jacksonville, Illinois and had around a 100 stations. They sold out a few years back, I don't recall to whom. Maybe someone can help out with those details. I remember the first years of the Missouri Show we would always stop at the Wareco station in Jacksonville. They were still using the station attendent logo and I have quite a number of different flat plastic quarts, coffee cups, matchbooks, etc. that I picked up in the late 90s. Unfortunantly that time is gone.

I'll post more stuff tomorrow!

Neat Mileage globe! You seldom see these arrow shaped 1-piece plastic globes. I have seen that same body style with DS faces and Western faces. Thanks for posting!

I have not seen a Wareco oval globe sell in the past couple of years. The last one that I know of selling brought $2750. If one came up for sale in todays market it would probably bring $2000-2250. For a company with a 100 stations there are very few of these globes in collections today.

I would like to add that Wareco also had a #1 Fuel oval shaped globe with the station attendent. It looks just like the globes pictured except that where the Regular or Ethyl words are it says #1 Fuel. If anyone knows where one of these are please let me know, it is probably worth a fair amount more than $2750.

I don't think I ever saw a Wareco globe in use. I wonder if anyone has a Consolidated oval? Those were also very common in the midwest.

I have a photo of a Consolidated oval and a few others that I will post later tonight. In the meantime here is an unusual shaped globe that many collectors have probably not seen.

Republic was a Pittsburg, PA. Marketer and sold gas throughout the southeast. They use this 3-sided cast 1-piece globe in the 20s. A few of these turned up close to 20 years ago under an old loading dock I believe in Virginia somewhere. They all had some condition issues. This one barely stands up but displays well. With the damage, the value is minimal but still makes for a unique piece.

Maybe I should be more condition driven like some collectors. But as a collector if I find a rare or unique globe with damage that is priced cheap and displays well I feel no shame putting it on my shelf until a better one comes along. Many times with a rare globe you may never have a chance to buy one you can afford.

Just my 2 cents. My advice to any collector is to buy what you like and can afford!

Hi John;

I got a couple of really dirty gill body globes in (looks like they had been found buried in the mud somewhere) and I cleaned them up but that is as far as they got!

I had forgotten about the existence of the Erickson globes. There was a station across from the sporting goods store my Dad frequented. I have a vague memory of sneaking across the street to look at them. I was about 5 or 6 at the time. Next time we went up north, they were gone. I felt vaguely guilty about it for ages, and thought it was because I'd gone to look at them.

Those Tydol shoebox globes are outstanding!

I'm working on a Tydol themed pump and really wish I could source one of those Tydol Flying A's with the black/orange striping. Does anyone have the dimensions on those shoebox globes?

Hi Wagz;

I like all of the unusual shaped globes but favorite ones are the Dixie "keyhole" shaped globes. It has been nearly 25 years ago that I saw my first large collection of globes and the guy had 3 of the Dixie keyhole shaped globes. I thought they were the neatest things I had ever seen.

Well, 25 years of searching, trading, begging, etc. I managed to put this group togather. Dixie Distributers was a Michigan Marketing organization that at its peak had jobbers in 17 states and they had over 1700 gas station selling Dixie gas. Their slogan was "Dixie Gas the Power to Pass". I do not know why they had the idea of using keyhole shaped globes. The cost per unit had to be considerably more that the cost of a metal body globe and lenses. The only reason I can think is that they wanted something unique to draw attention to their pumps.

These globes were used for a short period of time in the late 1920s and must have been used in a relatively small area because there are very few of them that have survived in collecions today.

Most everyone reading this is a collector. Many of you are quite passionate about collecting so you will understand why there are two Power to Pass globes in the last photo. If you look closely the one on the right has black letters and the one on the left has blue letters!

This pretty much wraps up this post for me. If you have anything to add to please do so and we plan on starting a new post next week.

I would like to wish everone a safe and prosperous New Year!

Lonnie

Lonnie--Thanks so very much for hosting this thread! Theres a lot of us out here that don't have the opportunity to see some of these great globes that you see! Posting them on this web site to share with everyone is time consuming and I want to be the first to thank you for your efforts! My knowledge of globes is greatly increased because of this thread and I think that knowledge is extremely important in pursuing this hobby! Again, thank you for your efforts!!--KEVIN

Gaspumpgary - Just got a tour of Chevron's archive office and they had 5 pristine Regent globes on the shelves. And no, they didn't allow me to "check them out" for a week or so! 3 of the globes were of diffent shapes. May try to get back and see if I can get a pic.

Lonnie I love your Wareco!! gaspumgary your ones too. However I love all globes smile

This is my rare OZO that was broke but with patience and glue it returned to be a globe... the neck is intact but remain the two holes that you can see.
