I have been doing some research on this glass face from an imperial glass globe and I can find no where that this design was actually used. It is my understanding that Imperial was tied in with Atlantic.
Does anyone know if this is fantasy or if this design was actually used?

Imperial actually produced this style globe lens.

See:
http://www.gaspumps.info/gallery/v/globes/Imperial/

It is not likely to have been reproduced because it is a fairly common globe in value and availability. Unmarked repro makers tend to make items with higher demand and higher potential value.

I remember these on pumps until fairly recently--maybe the early 1980s?
The Imperial you're thinking of is one of Atlantic's Premium grades.

The Atlantic Imperial is not related to the Imperial Refineries as far as I know.

See Atlantic Imperial:

Here is all there is to know about Imperial Refineries.

Scott Shipers did this company for "Company of the Month" back in 2004.
