No question...glass and plastic flames were both used on signs.
Standard started using the glass version in '46 or '47. The plastic version was introduced in the mid 1950's. There was a 2 pc porcelain bowl that mounted to the top of the sign. The flame mounted in the bowl.

Another UTOCO sign with glass flame. Pan-Am and Amoco with the red/white/blue torch & oval sign would have used the flames as well.

Like DB said the die cut porcelain flames were used on later signs.
