Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
It is a 3 inch glass orb done in a raised relief style globe with the continents colored in whites, pink, yellows, and dark blue and the oceans are a gorgeous light blue. This great little globe is mounted on a chromed pressed steel base with bright red indexed half meridian.
The entire globe measures approximately 5" tall and 3" acoss the base.
This little guy is in fair to good condition. The battery compart shows a home repair where one of the original battery contacts had been and was obviously missing. Someone with a bit of skill soldered a new contact (which is shorter than the original) to the original fitting which still had another contact in good condition. This was then attached with some kind of a very strong bond and the lamp lives on!! Inside of the battery compartment there is some oxidation and the repair but unless you go looking for it none of it shows and it is totally functional. On the base itself there is some oxidation to the bottom rim and the bottom has some areas of oxidation and a small hole due to oxidation. There is also a small patch of oxidation on the side of the base (which can be seen in picture #5). The globe itself is in excellent condition with no chips, scratches or mars at all. The meridian is also in very good contion with only a slight chip to the edge of the paint about half way up.
This is one rare and hard to find collectible globe and I have adjusted the price due to the repair and oxidation present! I can honestly say that none of the above mentioned affects the charm and style of this great little globe!!
As Always, ENJOY!!!
