Let's see you favorite globe - Tue Dec 02 2014 10:58 PM

If you could only keep one globe in your entire collection or its just your favorite globe let's see it. This is mine it came from a friend and I don't think I could ever let it go.

One of the first globes I ever bought. I did not even realize how good of a globe it was at the time. Just liked it and still do. One piece etched with original paint.

This one was my introduction to globes and the number has grown significantly since then. But best of all it is from a small refiner/retailer in my home town. It only has one lens...so if anyone has a spare. Thanks MM for the opportunity to buy it.

It's hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say in a fire situation the art-deco Marathon would be the one I would probably grab. I've said before that when I got into collecting Petroliana I bought the globe books and this globe stood out to me so much that I said I was going to own one someday. It took a few years but I finally did!

With all the beautiful original globes out there it's beyond me why there's even a market for that stuff (other than for display on an outside pump).
I guess collectors and decorators are both posting their favorite globes.

Re: Let's see you favorite globe - Fri Dec 05 2014 09:15 PM

Just what Scott and Wayne published: Rackliff Oill Company out of New Britain, CT. No company history.

I got this off of e-bay years ago. I've never seen (or heard of) another one.


FYI - I believe this image was originally intended to be a 13.5" lens. The white outer border is 3/4" (times two = 1.5", from 15.0" = 13.5") and there are some other clues on the art that lead me to believe it was supposed to only be a CAPCO/Glass Body globe.

None-the-less, there was enough existing information on my original lens for me to do a reproduction.

Here is a shot of what it would have looked like when it was new.

Well Dave...I purchased it from an auction quite a few years ago. Just got lucky and bid the highest with no story behind it....BUT, the original owner of this told me that he got a call from an old man about a pump that was for sale. When he arrived at the gentleman's home, which was way out in the forest in the Pacific Northwest in the middle of nowhere, he was amazed to see the pump with globe on top sitting out next to the guys barn. If my memory serves me, I think he said the pump was still operational and hooked up to an underground tank.

I had to pick this Southland because it took so very long to upgrade. Hopefully it will clean up some. The bottom is the single lens I had to live with for years.

Nice globes everyone and thanks for starting this post. Like everyone else it is hard to choose just one but this is my favorite of my Derby globes which I think looks great on a red ripple. Keep them coming.

In light of the Swedish entry I decided to continue with the International flavour with some Canadian Content.

Quote "which I think looks great on a red ripple." I would anything would look good in a red ripple holder! And Peter that Prairie Cities is very much one of my top choices given my Wpg heritage.

Love that Ace Hi globe Clifton!!

I like to collect local items when possible, from Minn, Mont, SD, and of course N Dak. This globe would qualify as ND and Minn, one of my all time favorites! Has a little damage on both sides toward the bottom but took me 20 years to get one.

This globe is from Gregory SD, a small market that had one of the greatest logo's, in my opinion. Also one my favorites!

This is my favorite Montana globe, that is, that I own anyway. There are a lot of great looking Montana globes!!

Re: Let's see you favorite globe - Sun Jan 04 2015 12:11 AM

This is my favorite N Dak globe. Westland oil is my favorite company to collect and this is my favorite globe from them that I own and that's because I don't have the one pc with the buffalo on it!! Lol. But this is a super rare piece that Greg was so kind to sell to me quite a few yrs back and I'm very lucky to have it in my collection. And yes, I'll be in Ariz next week hunting buffaloes!! Haha.

I sure am sure enjoying seeing all of these great globes! Thank you to all of you that have posted. I know, for many of you, it's hard to pick just one. This is probably my favorite because it would be the hardest to replace. It's a heavy, wide, etched, milk glass "canopy globe" from the teens. One of the first globes made after the "chimney tops". It came from a TEXACO station in central Nebraska, which closed in 1956.

Thank you for this thread.
