Can anyone tell me where I can find an all glass BP shield globe? Hopefully in the US too!

You could post your need n the "Wanted" forum here on Old Gas. Also contact Scott Benjamin. He knows were lots of globes are hiding! You can Google his name, along with the words "gas globes", and he'll come up. Good luck in your search. John

These globes are European. They were available as originals in the 40s in many Euro countries. Finding good originals are hard, the rain "took them", makin ugly runs in the paint.. picture of my original globe, made in Sweden at the Pukebergs Glass Factory. Second globe belongs to a friend and is much worse...

There is a British company that makes them nowadays, possibly blown in the original moulds, but not certain.
i believe they have a water decal on both sides that may be a bit fragile - indoor use only. Cheap though IMHO...
