1950 Replogle 12" Starlight Globe

This is an incredible 1950 12" Starlight globe by Replogle. 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 marked on both sides and a chromed metal base.

The condition of this globe is good!! The paper gores are tight and firmly attached. The colors are bright and vivid The equator tape is present but there is some scattered wear to the tape, nothing at all detracting. There is scattered light soiling and scuffing and the odd wrinkle or two but again, nothing that detracts from this great globe! The base is in beautiful condition also. There is no oxidation and minimal wear. It shines like new!! The meridian is also in good condition but it is a little cloudy in some areas.

The date was determined by the political borders as follows: Indochina 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!!!
