(Above) The large Ford Benzol gasoline ‘milk glass’ globe. Circa 1932 – 1942. This globe advertised Ford’s fuel known as Benzol and would have likely sat atop a wall sconce outside a dealership/service station. Benzol was sold primarily in the Detroit, Michigan region making this globe quite rare and unique. Six-side hexagon shape. Measures approximately 16.5-inches in height.
(Above) Most recognized from the Model T era with its winged Ford The Universal Car logo, this globe is double-sided with script. Circa 1920s. (photo courtesy of the Donald Passardi collection)
