Here's a few more Ashland globes.....not ones you see often........






The auction catalog for the Pepper globe described it as the "only one known"......not sure why, but most others I've seen were on metal bodies, so may be the smaller size on a glass body.

Here's a couple more globes....GO-MIX Outboard Motor Fuel........the Valvoline version is fairly common, but the Ashland version is pretty rare.

3 Ashland signs from the former local Ashland station. The 2 on the building now belong to Fuzzy a maybe soon to be oldgasser. The bottom one is under a coat of paint still doing service.

Based on the participation so far, it would appear that Ashland isn't a widely collected company....at least by Oldgas members. But just in case you're interested in learning more about the company's history, here's a few sources you might want to hunt up:

1) “Blazer and Ashland Oil, a Study in Management”. The author is Joseph L. Massie and the publisher is the University of Kentucky Press. Copyright 1960. (this book is currently available on eBay from seller "alldaypicker")

2) "E PLURIBUS UNUM", author Paul G. Blazer, published by the Newcomen Society, copyright 1956. Author was President and Chairman of Ashland Oil and Refining Company, Ashland Kentucky. (this sold on eBay less than a month ago)

3) "The Exception – History of Ashland Oil & Refining Company", by Otto J. Scott.
Published by McGraw-Hill in paperback in 1968. The author was commissioned by Ashland to write the book. (this is available on amazon.com)

When I started working for Ashland in 1971, "The Exception" was given to all new hires. I lived in a rented house in Ashland, KY for a month until my wife and kids could join me. Since I was without a TV and had virtually no furiture, I read the book during that first week. Somewhere over the years it disappeared.......so I don't have it now when I could finally put it to good use again.

I do remember at least one thing from the book. The book discussed the company's first auditor......don't recall his name but he worked for the company in the 1930's. While climbing on top of a large crude oil storage tank to measure the quantity of oil inside, the roof caved in and the poor fellow drowned in the oil. I worked as an auditor for Ashland for 8 years......needless to say I was extra careful when I had to strap storage tanks!!

Drowning in a vat of oil would SUCK! What a way to welcome you to the company. 'welcome to our team, hear is the way the last guy died...'

Keep it comin. I have nothing to add but I am enjoying it.

Here is the 15" version richard alluded to.



If anybody has a single 15" lens that they would be willing to part with - drop me a line. I've only got the one side on this globe. I put one of our 'frosted' lenses on the backside.

Later . . .

Jim

Speaking of Valvoline, I have an old steel oil barrel with the big heavy rings around it which has raised letters on top saying, "valvoline company, New England Dept." Does anyone know where at in New England this plant was? Sam

This rare one-piece etched globe was sold this morning by Matthews Auctions for $12,100..........





Speaking of Matthews Auctions........this fantastic 72" double sided porcelain sign sold this morning for only $29,700........





Of course, this sign has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with Ashland, Valvoline, or any of the other companies associated with Ashland........but I just couldn't resist posting the picture anyway!!!
