This isn't a globe, but it's really cool. It's a internally lit neon sign. An oldgas member recently bought this sign at a bargain price!!!! The seller was taking bids by email and she only let one of the guys bidding on it up his offer. Cost herself alot of money. At least it went to a good home where it will be appreciated.

The two Purol globes Dick posted are from the 20's. Pure was a big company and probably used different vendors for their globes. That could explain why there are so many Pure globes with minor differences.

Nels Purol Pep metal body globe is from the '27-'30 era. The Purol Pep 3pc glass is from the '30-'39 period.

The Energee True , and Energee Detonox globes are from the earlie 20's.

The U S Navy Gas globe was used from '32-'34.

The Meteeor 80 globe was from the W.H.Barber and Co. It was used from '35-'50.

The Purol metal body is from the 20's.

The Purol with the seal border idates from the early 30's.
The Purol Ethyl 3pc. glass and metal body globes were used from '32-'39.

Many of the metal body Pure globes are white porcelain. They were one of the few companies to use porcelain bodies.
Thanks again for sharing these globes.

Anyone have any Woco Pep globes they can post? How about some Hi Speed globes?
Keep those globe pics coming!
Bob
