Globes

Petrol  globes are spherical glass signs that fit on top of petrol pumps in the first half of the 20th century, advertising a specific oil company or brand of gasoline. Generally made from a plastic surround with a glass lens mounted on either side, they were produced in various shapes (like the Shell clam-shell) and innumerable designs. The purpose of gas pump globes was brand identification for drivers at a distance. Lighting was not as good on gas stations as it is today. Sometimes all a motorist could recognise driving by was the gas pump itself lit up, and the globe glowed so they'd know what brand of gas was available. Post World War II, pumps started getting smaller, and by the 1960s, it was unusual to have a globe. Check out all our range of globes. Each one describes the type of globe, size and price.

NOTE. Some of our materials to manufacture the globes come from USA which are charged in dollars . Due to the current fluctuation of the dollar to UK pound exchange we may have to increase our price to compensate. Please contact us to confirm price still showing on our web.

We manufacture  these globes ourselves and not all designs may be in stock. Also there are various options available to suit each individual customer. We therefore recommend that you email us in the first instance to ensure the product shown on our web site is available and delivery time.
