    This sign is approximately 24" in diameter. The wood frame is my own addition to protect it from distorting. I have it hanging in a window and enjoy it as the sun comes through it. I got the sign in a barter exchange for some work that a friend of mine asked me to do. What I would like to know is about how old it is and what its' value may be. I don't want to sell it but if it is worth a lot I may have to put insurance on it. The word "TEXACO" is painted on the glass. Can anyone help? I cannot find any info for this kind of stained glass.
    Thanks,
    Mr. Splinter

      In the 1997 publication of Texaco's collectors guide by Scott Benjamin and Wayne Henderson on page 66 it shows a similar picture to the stained-glass window you have. The caption says"one of the most unique signs ever used in the petroleum industry is the Texaco stained-glass building insert window" and it came from the Richard Evans collection. On page 49, it says"1918-1942, -22 inch, $1000-$1500 sign installed in building eaves, lead channel framework for stained-glass(colors) and milk glass(white area) lenses in the image of the Texaco logo. One of the most unique gasoline signs ever created. Used as late as the early 1940s on some prototype Teague Texaco stations. 19 and 28 inch versions also exist. Now the bad news, where your dark framed area exists, in the picture they show that as a heavy leaded circle with milk glass in a square framed insert. It looks to me, as if the bottom sections of your milk white glass have been replaced, which would make sense because in the picture underneath the blue tees they show our REG. T. M., As do a lot of the Texaco porcelain signs. My guess, is that section of your sign was damaged and replaced with different glass, because other than that, it looks like you have a match. Hope that helps, Mike
