Printer

Morphy Auctions is proud to present a 600-lot Premier Automobilia and Petroliana sale to be held on Sunday, July 23, starting promptly at 9 a.m. Morphy’s is recognized for its leadership in automobilia and petroliana and holds several world records within the categories. All lots from this July event are on display in Morphy's Denver auction gallery and are available for preview.
It’s no challenge to navigate this sale’s outstanding collection of antique porcelain signage. Examples from local, regional, and national brands are all on offer. Lot 16, a 28-inch Nourse Motor Oil sign featuring an orange and black Viking yielding a club, is destined to be a big hit with collectors. It is estimated at $15,000-$25,000. Lot 18, a red, black, and white 32-inch Red Hat Motor Oil and Gasoline sign, is another auction headliner. It is estimated at $15,000-$20,000. Lot 19, a red, white, and green 48-inch Sinclair Aircraft sign decorated with the company’s classic logo plane, takes flight at $15,000-$20,000. Lot 12, a red, white, black, and gold Billups Premium pump plate with dual airplane graphics, is another elite sign election in this grouping. It is estimated at $8,000-$12,000. And all eyes will be on lot 137, a hard-to-find, large, rectangular Power-Lube Motor Oil sign featuring the company’s more friendly than fierce tiger logo. This jungle-gem is estimated at $10,000-$20,000.
Now let’s switch our focus to the comprehensive selections of globes and lenses offered through this sale. Things are twice as nice with a number of top tier dual lens selections. Collectors may go to battle over lot 35, 15-inch Independent Gasoline globe lenses, estimated at $9,000-$12,000. The lenses are detailed with a colorful scene of a patriotic march, including musicians, armed soldiers, and an early American flag. Lot 40, 13.5-inch Buffalo Gasoline globe lenses on a milk glass body, is estimated at $4,000-$6,000. Each lens is dynamically decorated with the company’s charging red and black buffalo logo. And lot 339, 13.5-inch Red Wing Anti-Knock Gasoline globe lenses, is a real head turner. These feature the company’s red and blue Indian Chief profile mascot and are estimated at $4,000-$6,000.
This sale offers an astonishing array of single lens gas pump toppers. Two high fliers in this category feature airplane graphics. The first is lot 21, a 15-inch Kendall Gasoline lens. This example comes on a red metal body and features Kendall’s black and red propeller plane logo. The second is lot 22, a 15-inch Jenney Aero Gasoline lens. This black, white, and orange lens is decorated with the company’s logo against a twilight blue background. Both are certain to soar with their $12,000-$15,000 and $15,000-$20,000 estimates, respectively. Another solid choice of a single lens highlight would have to be lot 24, a 13.5-inch Rock Island Gasoline lens on its original ripple body. This red, blue, white, and teal rarity is estimated at $6,500-$9,000.
July’s auction presents a number of items from the Gilmore Oil Company, the West Coast petroleum distributor known for its dramatic promotions. Many feature the company’s popular logo mascot. Lot 192, a “Roar with Gilmore” lens decorated with the lion jumping over a checkered flag, is estimated at $8,000-$12,000. Lot 193, a Gilmore Blu-Green Gasoline lens featuring a roaring lion head, is estimated at $8,000-$12,000. And lot 191, a Gilmore Red Lion plus Tetraethyl lens, springs to life with a lunging lion with dramatic, prominent claws and teeth. It is estimated at $12,000-$16,000.
This sale rounds out with first-class offerings of other transportation related collectibles, including ephemera, oil cans, displays, and other seldom seen rarities. These include lot 28, an original 13.5-inch blue ripple globe body, estimated at $7,5000-$10,000; lot 234, an Alligator Boot Tire Repair tin store display, estimated at $2,500-$4,000; and lot 52, a Conoco Minuteman handy household oiler, estimated at $700-$1,000. And the heat will surely be on lot 46, a Red Hat Motor Oil and Gasoline porcelain thermometer, estimated at $4,000-$6,000.
“Our automobilia and petroliana sales events are always extremely exciting and generate interest worldwide. I have no doubt that this auction will follow in that much deserved reputation. This one-day, carefully assembled sale offers a robust and comprehensive selection of signs, globes, and other rarities at a full range of price points. All enthusiasts should be able to add at least a few new treasures to their growing collections! It’s hard to pick my favorite, but I find the Independent Gasoline globe lenses particularly eye-catching. The decoration is extremely detailed, well-illustrated, and patriotic. We welcome you to visit our gallery in Denver, Pa., to view these outstanding items firsthand, or, of course, check them out online anytime at www.morphyauctions.com,” said Dan Morphy, president of Morphy Auctions.
