The streamlined modern lines of this terrestrail globe adds to the glamorous Art Deco appeal! This sleek glass globe illuminates, providing a soft ambient glow that only glass globes can provide. Illuminated glass globes were only produced up until the early 60's when globe manufacturers opted for plastics instead.
This globe displays Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer, Mountain Ranges, International Date Line, and the Great Circle Measuring Scale which is located along the 30 degrees W Longitude.
Political borders that dated this: Morocco present (changed 1956), Ghana present (changed 1957) and Malay still present (changes to Malaysia in 1957).
The condition of this is very good. There is one small (less than 1/8") pin spot in the Soviet Union that light is visible when lit and a few virurtual pin pricks on the globe (again, only visibile when lit). The gores are all tightly attached and the globe spins freely! There is some darkening of the glores that is noticable when lit. The base has what appears to be wear in the form of light staining but there is no oxidation present. Nothing mentioned above detracts in any way from the great look of this fairly hard to find size illuminated globe.
As always, ENJOY!!!
