15 Inch Gas Pump Globes

One globe includes two 15-inch glass lenses and a steel body. Steel bodies may be purchased in bare steel or powder-coated. The choice of body colors is shown in the drop-down menu.

All of our lenses are glass. They’re screen printed and kiln fired here in our shop using techniques from the 1920s and ‘30s. We use permanent kiln-fired glass enamel which will not fade or peel.

Single lenses can be purchased; just make that choice in the drop-down menu.

For globe bodies only, go to the Gas Pump Globe Bodies section on the left.

 

 

*A note about raw steel bodies: They may arrive with light spots of surface rust. Be sure to store in a climate-controlled location (not a damp garage, for example) to prevent rust before painting. Bare steel can rust very quickly in humid conditions.

*A note about powder-coating: Choosing a powder-coated steel body may delay your order 7-10 days. If you’re in a rush, call us at 503-228-8347 to see if we have your chosen color on hand.

*A note about paint and snap rings: On our steel bodies, we have found that after painting or powder coating, the snap rings meant to hold the lenses in place are not always reliable because of the paint build-up. To help secure lenses in place, some restorers use 3-4 pencil-eraser sized dots of clear silicone on the back side of each lens where it meets the body.
