1948 Replogle 12" Precision Globe done in the style of the Starlight Globe!

This is an incredible 1948 12" Precision globe by Replogle done in the style of the Starlight Globe of the same era. Legend reads: Designed and edited by Gustav Brueckmann, cartographer.

The globe is constructed of coated paper gores over pasteboard. The oceans are finished in black and contrast beautifully with the brightly colored land masses. There is a time dial at North Pole.

The mounting is a chromed half ring cast metal meridian indexed on both sides and a chromed metal base.

The condition of this globe is very good to excellent! The paper gores are tight and firmly attached. The colors are bright and vivid and there is no loss of map anywhere. There is minimal wear in the form of a few scattered wrinkles, very light soiling and some scattered scuffs to the equator tape. The equator tape is present all around the globe! The base is in beautiful condition also. There is no oxidation and the base shines like a mirror!

The date was determined by the political borders as follows: Indochina no longer French and present, Siam present, Korea undivided; Isreal present.

This globe is a staple in any collectors gallery and would be a great way to start a collection!

As always, ENJOY!!!
