    I called a friend today and ask if he wanted to go to Bloomington, Indiana to an antique store and just look around. I was there a few weeks ago and he said why not. So we headed down south and had to go through Martinsville. On the way down he said did you see that globe in that store window and I said no, it's probably a reproduction. So we headed on to Bloomington and looked around and didn't find anything or in my price range. Had something to eat and headed home. Went back through Martinsville and that store was still opened. So we stopped and I couldn't believe it when we went in, this is an original gas globe. It has a one piece milk glass hull and two glass lenses. The lenses are 13 1/2" and the over all length is 16 3/4". She called the owner and we came to a price on the phone.

      I dont think anybody makes glass hull reproductions do they? never saw one. what a nice find!
    2. chevy59 chevy59, 10 years ago
      Nice Pick!
    3. oilman514 oilman514, 10 years ago
      All the sinclair ethyl lenses in a hull body I've seen were 13 1/2" but to me it looks correct. And like EWJ-14 said i dont think they are making reproductions of a hull body. IMO its original.
    4. officialfuel officialfuel, 10 years ago
      oilman514, I reameasured the lens and it is 13 1/2". After your input and EJW-54, I'm positive this is original, IMO. Thank you both for your time!

      Grew up with my "sister"/friend next door. Her dad owned a Sinclair station at the edge of the local community park. Can't beat the nostalgia of a Sinclair sign!
