Vintage World Globe - Cold War Eames Retro - Replogle Starlight - 1957

This is a vintage 1957 Replogle 12 inch Starlight Globe. Designed and edited by Gustav Brueckmann, cartographer. Replogle Globes, Inc. Chicago. c1957. Shiny gores over pasteboard, time dial at North Pole. The cceans are finished in black rather than the more common blue/green, and the continental shelves in white. The globe shows nautical distances and Equinoctial Colure or the International Date Line. The mounting of this Globe is a wonderful representation of the Mid Century Modern design style, blended with retro features. It features a chrome finished gimbal mount with retro accents that rotates vertically and horizontally. Diameter of the model is 12 inches with a total height of about 17 inches.

This was dated using the political borders as follows: Morocco (1956) Ghana (1957) and Malay which changes to Malaysia in 1957.

This Globe is in good condition, the colors are bright and vivid. The gores are all tightly held. The equator tape is present all around and only shows minimal wear in the form of light scuffs. There are scattered scratches and scuffs on the globe, none of which affect the map or the look of this classic globe!! There is one tiny spot of loss of map located in the Sudan (see picture 2) The chrome base and meridian are also in good condition with very minimal wear and virtually no pitting! The entire mount is very firm!

With all of that said, I can honestly say that this gobe displays very nicely and you have to be right on top of it to notice any imperfections.

A fine piece showing a very specific glimpse in time at the very beginnings of the cold war!!

As always, ENJOY!!!
