Vintage World Globe Nystrom Company 1967 Table Globe Unusual Pine Cradle Base Large 16" Size by metrocottage

This is a great and unusual vintage globe!
This is a beautifully colored globe, intended for schoolroom instruction in physical geography.

Coated paper gores over hollow plastic orb, without time dial.
The oceans are finished a vivid medium blue, showing prevailing currents.
The globe is laid into a pine wood cradle stand, without meridian.

Emphasis is on weather and topographical features in vivid varying colors, with few place names. Shows East and West Pakistan (which divided in 1971), Chungking in China.

From the large 16'' size, the dated 1967 version, and the truly different wooden x-shaped stand,
you won't find these around every day.
Not the "dime a dozen", 12" basic globe on a metal stand.

Don't get me wrong those are wonderful, but this one is really a gem.

I believe it may have been on the traditional metal base at one time, and then someone made the wood base. There is a hole in the bottom, in Antarctica.

This globe is in great vintage condition, with no major rips or flaws.
There is one small area where the paper is a bit peeled back, on the top near the Arctic ocean and up above Sweden. It is not too noticeable and could be easily fixed.

If you collect globes, snap this one up quick- they don't come along every day!
