Just curious if any others have hand painted globe lens. I have these in my collection and sure would be interested in seeing yours. Often wondered why they did these but I still like them.

They did them because it was cheap, easy, and fast way to get a custom lens made special. They probably used local artists and sign shops.

Threads drift. Just like conversations. It's a fact of life. Cool lenses. Love the Economy

Wow! And we wonder why people left this site......I only commented on the ¢ symbol because it came up. Then I posted a nice comment about your globes!

And I get attacked! Unbelievable!

Didn’t mean to be rude to you. Actually I thought it was funny. Guess I was a cranky old man. Just hoping we see some others but I guess not.
