From 1919-1926. I’m not a globe expert. The 2016 globe CD has them around $600-850. So I would guesstimate around $800-1000 now-a-days. Maybe someone else will chime in if there have been recent sales. Just my 2 cents.
Speaking of that, Scott Benjamin’s new Globe Guide just came out. I highly recommend it. I think everyone in this hobby should get it. Even if your not into globes, it has a wealth of company info and can also help with what years which logos were used.
And I’m not plugging his guide for any other reason than the fact that I don’t know how I got by without it in the past.
This beauty is mine. It will be in the big Glenn Miller auction coming up on Friday, December 6 in Tomah, Wisconsin. No bidder's premium for in-person bidders. Bid online through AuctionZip. Glenn personally packages items for shipping, and is very reasonable. Or, he’s also happy to hold purchased items for pick-up at his shop near Tomah.
This sign I'm selling is the 1937-1938 early version of the red, white, and blue, 42” BUICK Authorized Service sign. It's a very nice quality sign. Two-sided porcelain, with very good gloss. The only blemish of note is at the lower edge on both sides (shown in my photos here). This sign is identified as the “early version” by the smaller BUICK script logo. The postwar version of this BUICK sign has a noticeably bigger BUICK logo.
Hi, Gang. I'd like to buy a good condition pair of ASHLAND FLYING OCTANES ETHYL globe lenses. Either for glass or plastic body. Would buy a complete globe, if necessary at your end. I thought it would just be easier to ship lenses-only. Please send me a PM. Thanks for looking. John
I have 3 or 4 six-foot Texaco's to choose from and I'm right across the border. I'm between Detroit and Port Huron. I don't have any poles. My number is in my profile if you want to come take a look at them.
You said " Not sure I want to Jerry rig something for the globe connection seeing how they did not come with them."
So don't. You obviously liked them without the globes. Paint them and enjoy!
You also said "with the globe on them makes them too high for the house". So don't put a globe on them now. Enjoy them as they are or after they are painted the way you want.
I can't see the entire garage but from what I can see, they would look good positioned on either side of your cabinet on the left and let the globes on the top shelf be the focus for globes. IMO would be a nice display.
When you are ready to sell; deal with adding a globe at that time, if that's what buyers want/demand.
Oh, one more option.... You could cut a hole in the ceiling like this Texas Museum did in order to display their Texaco Pumps....🙄😂
