I guess if you can make it an advertisment you can put it on anything if it works for you, just like people useing milk bottle carriers for oil bottle ones, if it works.

I found that globe the day after the hoosier gas show in evansville, in an antique store for 10$. The person had it labeled as a lamp fixture.

Is the globe worth something?

Sorry Ethan, but it looks like a bathroom light shade from the 40ties -50ties, to me.

No Dwaine, I've saw them be used on all kinds of pumps around here.

I was told It was supposed to go on top of a stationlighter pump.

They might fit on a pump but so will a coffee can. I looked through all the books that I have and there is no "globe" like that. I would trust the old guys... if they say it is a lamps shade I would bet dollars to doughnuts it is a lamp shade.
Ummmm doughnuts....

The bottom of the globe has a lip in it that perfectly holds globe screws.

It also fits perfectly in a globe ring.

This is not the first time I have saw a shade exactly like this on a pump.

Ethan, I have this sign that I really want to be a "Gilmore" sign, it looks like the Gilmore Lion, it's porcelain, it's a great size, and someone once told me it was a Gilmore sign. But......it's not any more of a Gilmore sign, than your lamp shade globe is a gas pump globe. Sorry bud, but I'm with Dwaine.

Thanks hubba.

If Don and Dwaine says it isn't a globe then I guess it isn't a globe. But I dont care, because it looks cool.

Thanks for the comments on the store everyone!

Ethan,
Your "globe" is 100% light globe, not gas pump globe. That style light shade was used from the late 1920's through at least the 50's. I remember seeing my dad throw away lots of those when he remodeled an office building in the 60's. $10 is about the going rate for that type shade right now.

nothing says you can't put a gilmore decal on both sides of it, and a gilmore decal on the pump. so , to make your story also true, durring the war years , 1 and 2 they never made globes or porcelain signs , so you never know what might have went on a pump just to keep water from going inside, even though the globe books say it was used durring "" it wasn't made then, like I've said before , out here on the left side , most of the great west coast globes was broken out durring black outs, have fun with it , just don't try selling it as a globe,

If the globe did not have the recess ring, it never would stay in the ceiling fixture. Put some gasoline decals on it, and enjoy.
