Need help to identify the globe in this picture. Sorry for the Small Picture. It's all I have.
I know obviously it is a Standard Co. Globe. It is impossible to find an original one that survive all these years down here in Brazil.
I want to replicate the globe using a "blank" globe to use in my Visible Gas pump, but first need help to identify globe Type, than I know which direction to go.
Thank you!

That appears to be a Ball crank body. They had three lens mounting screws per side at 3, 4 & 8 O'clock.

You can replicate the lenses easily and just use a wide regular milk glass body.

Later . . .

Jim, thank you for this valuable information!

Did a quick search on Google for this Balcrank body and seems like it will be a chalenge trying to find one.

As you suggest, I will probably replicate it using a Wide Milk glass body.
Any suggestions on who replicate globe lenses? Can not find any down here in Brazil.

Thx

Alan, click on the yellow "Tways Graphics" icon at the bottom of Tways post. He can make your lenses.
