That globe is way cool. Wayne Henderson can correct me but I believe Mexico nationalized all petro products in the late 1930s. That's when Sinclair left. I have one globe from either Mexico/Cuba. A Sinclair H-C on glass that says, "Sinclair Gasolina" . Looking for any quart cans and other Sinclair globes from there like the "Sinclair Productos" with the Rooster. Please let me know if anyone finds one...
Thanks, yes Mexico nationalized all petroleum related products/services in 1938, so all foreign and local companies exited the market (or were kicked out). The most prominent ones were El Aguila, Huasteca and Sinclair.
That Sinclair globe is fantastic. I will look for old pictures of Sinclair petrol stations to see if I can find out if the globe is Mexican
If you ever want to sell it, keep me in mind!
