DESCRIPTION: Waiting for your purchase is this terrific collector glass from BP (British Petroleum) featuring the artwork of famed illustrator NORMAN ROCKWELL. This glass is called GONE FISHING, and it shows an old man asleep in his boat while his dog pays attention to the fishing pole. The design was a cover for the magazine SATURDAY EVENING POST on July 19, 1930. On back of the glass is printed information about the illustration, headed by 'BP PRESENTS". This glass was a premium given out when you purchased BP gas so it fits the category Petroliana, which has to do with anything pertaining to gas companies and their products or premiums. There is no maker's mark on the glass that I can find, but there is the number 10 on the bottom in raised letters. The glass is large and heavy bottomed--what is termed a highball glass. The glass is clear with the design fired on so it will not rub or wash off with normal use. Always handwash collectibles as dishwashers can fade the designs. The glass is in very good condition and will be great to add to your collection.
MEASUREMENT: The glass stands 4 1/4 inches tall and measures 3 1/4 inches across the top. It will hold 10-12 ounces.
CONDITION: VERY GOOD--design is clear and bright--no chips or cracks--has small shallow scratch about half an inch long on clear glass on one side--not deep but wanted to mention it
