Gulf Oil Collector Mugs

Gulf Old Spindletop collector mug

Several decades ago, Gulf Oil created “The Gulf Collector’s Series Limited Edition” set of colorful promotional coffee mugs for their service station customers. This is the “Old Spindletop – Gulf’s First Gusher, Texas 1901” mug from that series. The front decal depicts two farmers, a Gulf employee standing in front of a horse-drawn oil wagon marked “Gulf Refining Co.”, and Old Spindletop in the background spouting forth a large black cloud of oil. Back says:

In 1901, near Beaumont, TX, Spindletop gushed black gold giving birth to Gulf Oil Co. Theo. Roosevelt became President following McKinley’s assassination. Americans were cheering the new American League baseball teams and ogling the revolutionary “wish book.” In 1903, the Wright brothers made their record flight (852'). The wireless telephone shook the world in 1906 and San Francisco shook with a devastating earthquake. The average worker earned 22˘ an hour, coffee was 15˘ per pound and gas was 14˘ per gallon. Automobiles sold for about $1500, but there were fewer than 150 miles of paved highway.

This clear glass mug stands 3-1/2" tall x 3-1/8" in diameter and measures 4" across at its handle. Bottom is marked Luminarc and carries the number 21. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. We have two of these “Spindletop” mugs, and price is for each. Be sure to see our 5 additional mugs from this series listed immediately below. As a full set of 6, these mugs are not only beautiful, but also give interesting and informative glimpses into American culture during the first half of the 20th Century. If you can bear to part with them, they’d make a great gift! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Gulf First Service Station collector mug

Several decades ago, Gulf Oil created “The Gulf Collector’s Series Limited Edition” set of colorful promotional coffee mugs for their service station customers. This is the “World’s First Drive-In Service Station, Pittsburgh, PA 1913” mug from that series. The front decal depicts a gasoline delivery truck marked “Gulf Refining Company” and “That Good Gulf Gasoline.” The driver watches while a man behind the truck prepares to fill a large gas can. Behind is the service station whose sign reads “Good Gulf Gasoline.” Back says:

In 1911, Ray Harroun crossed the finish line of the first Indianapolis 500 at 74 mph. The “unsinkable” Titanic sank in 1912. Norman Rockwell became famous in The Saturday Evening Post. Broadway boasted Zegfeld’s follies, Geo. M. Cohan and Irving Berlin. The Keystone Kops bungled chase scenes in Tin Lizzies and Charlie Chaplin twitched his mustache. Woodrow Wilson became President in 1913 and Congress passed the 16th Amendment (income tax). The first drive-in service station, built by Gulf Oil Co., sold gas at 21˘ per gallon. By 1914, women suffragettes were in full swing and Tarzan started to swing with Jane.

This clear glass mug stands 3-1/2" tall x 3-1/8" in diameter and measures 4" across at its handle. Bottom is marked Luminarc and carries the number 65. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. We have two of these “First Service Station” mugs, and price is for each. Be sure to see 5 additional mugs from this series listed above and below. As a full set of 6, these mugs are not only beautiful, but also give interesting and informative glimpses into American culture during the first half of the 20th Century.

Gulf World War I Years collector mug

Several decades ago, Gulf Oil created “The Gulf Collector’s Series Limited Edition” set of colorful promotional coffee mugs for their service station customers. This is “The World War I Years” mug from that series. The front decal depicts a Gulf Oil Company gas station in front of which is an automobile presumably out of gas because it’s being powered by two horses hitched in front. A WWI soldier stands in front of an Uncle Sam sign saying “I Want You.” Back says:

The sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 led to the U.S. declaring war on Germany in 1917. The Selective Military Conscription Bill passed the draft into effect. Marriages bloomed. Liberty Bonds and the War Savings Stamps went on sale as doughboys marched to “lick the Kaiser.” Eddie Rickenbacker took after the Red Baron and Alvin York left to go “Over There.” By 1918 there were shortages of everything and America began “Hooverizing.” They ate “Liberty cabbage” and “Victory bread.” They endured “Wheatless Mondays,” Meatless Tuesdays,” and on “Gasless Sundays” they hitched horses to their automobiles.

This clear glass mug stands 3-1/2" tall x 3-1/8" in diameter and measures 4" across at its handle. Bottom is marked Luminarc and carries the number 50. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. Be sure to see our 5 additional mugs from this series listed above and below.

Gulf Roaring 20's collector mug

Several decades ago, Gulf Oil created “The Gulf Collector’s Series Limited Edition” set of colorful promotional coffee mugs for their service station customers. This is “The Roaring ’20s’” mug from that series. The front decal depicts a Gulf gas station saying “Good Gulf Gas” and “Gas 25˘”. A farmer and his dog watch as a “mod” gent cranks the engine of his roadster while his flapper companion waits in front of the station smoking a cigarette in a very long cigarette holder. Back says:

America roared into the ’20s’. Helped by women voting for the first time, Harding became President. Prohibition became law. Speakeasies, bathtub gin and bootleggers flourished. The Jazz Age was heralded by Whiteman, Gershwin, Armstrong and Ellington. Couples everywhere literally dropped out of dance marathons. F. Scott Fitzgerald was king of youth. Clara Bow was the “It Girl” and Valentino flipped the hearts of the flappers. In 1927, the “Babe” hit his 60th home run. The first “talkie” appeared on screen and Lindbergh made the first solo flight from New York to Paris. This was the Golden Age of the automobile.

This clear glass mug stands 3-1/2" tall x 3-1/8" in diameter and measures 4" across at its handle. Bottom is marked Luminarc and carries the number 40. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. Be sure to see our 5 additional mugs from this series listed above and below.

Gulf Great Depression collector mug

Several decades ago, Gulf Oil created “The Gulf Collector’s Series Limited Edition” set of colorful promotional coffee mugs for their service station customers. This is “The Great Depression Years” mug from that series. The front decal depicts a Gulf gas station with the attendant about to check under the hood of an old jalopy loaded with people, luggage, and even a crate of apples on the running board. Back says:

The Stock Market crash of ’29 ruined the lives of thousands. Unemployment soared and “apple” sellers appeared everywhere. Foreclosures, droughts and dust storms forced “Okies” to pack everything on their cars, looking for work. Hitch-hikers hit the roads, hoboes rode the rails and homeless lived in “shanty towns.” People were so poor that criminals became Robin Hoods. Al Capone, Ma Barker, Bonnie and Clyde and Public Enemy No. 1 (John Dillinger) were as well known as Hoover’s G-Men. F.D.R. was elected President in 1932 and in 1933 Prohibition ended. America hoped that “Happy Days are Here Again.”

This clear glass mug stands 3-1/2" tall x 3-1/8" in diameter and measures 4" across at its handle. Bottom is marked Luminarc and carries the number 50. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. We have two of these “Great Depression” mugs, and price is for each. Be sure to see our 5 additional mugs from this series listed above and below.

Gulf Dawning of a New Era collector mug

Several decades ago, Gulf Oil created “The Gulf Collector’s Series Limited Edition” set of colorful promotional coffee mugs for their service station customers. This is “The Dawning of a New Era” mug from that series. The front decal depicts a Gulf gas station with attendants servicing cars while whistling at Rosie the Riveter walking by in overhauls and carrying her wrench and lunch pail. Back says:

Amid the U.A.W. and “sit-down” strikes, America was coming out of the depression. King Edward VIII abdicated to marry American divorcee Wally Simpson. Jitterbuggers in zoot suits were “truckin” and talking “jive.” Service stations introduced double canopies to serve streamlined cars. Gas was 15˘. Dick Tracy, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon and Little Orphan Annie colored the comics. The Marx Brothers and Berkely’s musicals lightened the mood while Andy Hardy had man-to-man talks with Judge Hardy. Orsen Wells’ “War of the Worlds” on radio caused a panic. World War II caused women to join the work force.

This clear glass mug stands 3-1/2" tall x 3-1/8" in diameter and measures 4" across at its handle. Bottom is marked Luminarc and carries the number 15. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. Be sure to see our 5 additional mugs from this series listed immediately above.
