I have a number a original gas globes that I wanted to get a value range of.

Blue Sunoco - single piece lens, 15" diameter

Shell Clamshell - 17" tall and wide with a 6" base, embossed letting, with paint missing and faded

Texaco Star Globe - 13" lens inserts in a plastic body, which appears like it is marbled, some hairline cracks in plastic. Has a letter "C" in the lower center of each lens.

Texaco Sky Chief - 14" lens inserted on a glass body with a metal ring attaching them. No marks or dates on the lenses.


I also have a 15" diameter metal globe frame, that appears to have been painted. No markings on it.

I am looking for any information regarding these globes - age, history and of course value range. Thank you for your assistance.
