If you're looking for a great gift for someone in your office, this 1960's Desk Set from Roy's Mfg. might be just the item you are looking for. This Desk Set is a miniature copy of a full size gas pump from the 1920's/30's. This authentic looking Miniature Visible Gas Pump comes with an Oldsmobile Service Globe on top, a clear visible area on the pump with numbers which showed how much gas was purchased, and a hose with a metal gas handle. Along with the gas pump there is a Parker Ball Point Pen which is held in place inside a movable gold plated metal pen holder.
The Miniature Gas Pump and the Pen both stand on a wood base with a name plate on the front which can be removed to add another name if your giving this Desk Set as a gift. On the name plate it states: "1984 Z. T. Z. C. C. U. 9th Tour June 21-24 Brandywine, Del." There are four felt pieces on the bottom of the base--one on each corner. The base measures 6" long, 3 1/8" wide and ¾" tall. The gas pump is 7 1/2" tall and the pen stands 7" tall.
The name of the past owner is printed in ink on the top of the box along with the Patent No. D253464, and Model No. GPPS. On the bottom it's stamped Roy's Mfg., Copyrighted in 1960.
**Condition of box: The box is in good- condition. There are light tan spots on most of the box, crease marks at the bottom right back corner and the bottom right side corner, a 1" tear at bottom left front corner, and a few crease marks on the top and bottom flaps. There is also some blue ink on the inside of the top flap(not visible from the outside).
**Condition of Desk Set: The Desk Set is in very good condition. There is a black mark on the bottom of the base of the desk set.
The pump on this Desk Set represents a time when gas was under 20 cents a gallon. What a neat collectable to give as a gift or to add to your own collection.
