I have never paid much attention to anything about these globes because I don’t care too much for them. That being said, I found one for about 1/4 of what I’ve seen them go for so I bought it. It has a K-Mart sticker from 1975 I think on it. What is the best way to remove the sticker and clean it in general?  I usually clean my globes with Gojo but that doesn’t seem wise in this case. As always, thanks!! 97C4AA56-9520-408A-944A-B7DC45B73A44.jpeg

I would leave it there. You said that you don't care for them. NOS will bring you a better price if you decide to part with it.

Good idea. I definitely won’t remove it until I decide  if I want to use it on a runner sometime.

Would that be safe to use on the tint?

The tint is IN the glass, not ON the glass. You should be able to treat it like you would any other globe.

I Agee with the others. I’ve used acetone and WD-40 and both work well. I’ve never used goo gone but I hear it works well. I’ve also soaked things in hot soapy water until the sticker softened and taken them off with a single edge razor blade scraper

See, that shows what little I know about these. I thought the tint was added after the fact.

I have a free sticker removal company I just started.. Just send NOS lanterns, globes, etc. to me and will take care of you. 😁

All the above will work, just be careful..  it's still glass, I say this from experience. Years ago I busted a red letter bulged globe that had paint on it. I guess I was too aggressive. 😳

You live and learn. 😕

LOL. Have you had any takers yet?  I’ve been fortunate on globes so far. I have crushed a couple brass items so far.

Thanks!!!  I bought that from a really good buddy of mine. This said buddy doesn’t know it yet but he’s planning on selling me a US 200 also. Seeing how he owns all of them west of the Mississippi.

Ive been using the search option to find out about these colored globes. It seems that they started out clear and someone dyed them?  If the tent is IN the glass and not ON the glass, then the tent  penetrated the entire glass?? I am as confused as a baby raccoon!!

I could certainly be wrong, it's happened before 😉  My understanding is that the glass is impregnated with the tint, that it's not just applied to the surface.  I've never seen it scratched off a globe before.

 I didn’t mean to imply you were wrong. From what I read you are correct. It’s just my feeble brain doesn’t understand the process lol.

Probably some type of chemical vapor deposition to get the tint into the glass.  Unfortunately, Jafe sold off the rights to another company, so no more colored borosilicate glass for us.  I bet they would have continued if it weren't for the MIC globes, which do not take to the coloring very well.  At least not the red.  If you have a red globe, treasure it as it may be the most valuable item in your collection now.

Agree with Jim on the MIC globes. The red comes through looking like crap brown. I found that besides the ion absorption method JAFE used that it is possible to mix the dye into the raw material used to make the glass. This may be how the sky blue globes seen on ebay are made. Borosilicate glass can only be stained yellow-nutmeg-red. Those are the only choices. Cast railroad globes have dye in the glass. There is another glass (lime?) that gives back a series of greens.
After trying to clean a stained sky blue Ditmar globe I finally realized it was lacquer dipped. Oops.

Below is an abandoned patent application for using an amber globe as a bug repellant. Per the patent application a dye tint is applied to the globe and fired to ~1200 deg. If you look further, you can find the yellow glass tint available on line.

Borosilicate glass can be purchased in lots of different colors: https://www.mountainglass.com/boro-glass-33-coe/color

Just find a glassblower willing to make up some globes for you. It would help a lot if you have cast iron molds for him/her to blow them into.

Come to think of it, if anyone ever comes across an original mold for globes, I have several friends who blow glass....

Timm,

How about asking your friends what's needed for a mold to make a globe?   If an expendable globe is required, I'm sure someone could come up with a cheapie, or even one with a super glued crack.

Probably, or something similar. If somebody likes to experiment and has access to a kiln or a local art pottery shop, then one could get some of the below transparent tints, paint on some clear globes, then fire them to 1100 degrees and see how they turn out. Back in the day I had a friend that did pottery and she kept her kiln in my carport and fired her pottery there.

I'm pretty sure the molds are cast iron, with a polished interior. A little beyond my shop skills. I'll ask--there must be somewhere that makes glass-blowing molds. The potential is endless--how about a rainbow globe? Stars and stripes?

Zoom--You're going to need pretty good temp control, as the slump temp for borosilicate glass isn't a lot higher than that. But my glass blowing buds have just that, so I think I'll order some of those transparent enamels and see what they can do with them. I have a case of MIC 200 globes, so if I lose a couple, no biggy.

If you have broken pieces of globes that could be used for the first test, that would be a good use for them. If the people have an open furnace, they may be able to hold a coated piece in there and see how it goes for a start.
