Souvenir china – oilfield examples

I’m putting together a different sort of poster presentation for the 2016 Oil History Symposium in Casper, WY next month.  Searching the internet, using examples from my own collection, and with help from some museums and other collectors, I’ve put together many examples of souvenir china with petroleum themes.  These include oil gushers, oilfield scenes, refineries, gas wells, and oil tank fires.   Souvenir china, especially pieces made by the Wheelock Company, were popular in the late 1800s and early 1900’s.  Here are three examples from my collection.  Anyone out there have any?
