WORLD GLOBE | Nystrom 16-inch Pictorial Relief Globe | Vintage (c.1955-1956) Extra-Large Mid-Century Classroom Globe | Cold War USSR | Danish Modern Stand

D E S C R I P T I O N
Presenting a MASSIVE world globe made by Nystrom. This desirable extra-large classroom globe features bright geo-political graphics and an unusual and very decorative Mid-Century/Danish Modern style stand with modern circular, open base. The stand also allows the globe to be tilted up and down as well as to spin. Globe dates to the mid 1950's (approx.1955-56) and showcases the rapidly changing political landscape of the early Cold War era. Globe depicts countries that have disappeared from the modern map, including:

AFRICA
- Bechuanaland 1885-1966 (modern Botswana)
- Ivory Coast (changed name to Cote d'Ivoire in 1986)
- Dahomey (renamed Benin in 1972)

- Belgian Congo 1908-1960 (modern Democratic Republic of the Congo)
- Spanish Sahara 1884-1975 (modern Western Sahara)

- British Somaliland 1884-1960 (in present north-west Somalia)
- French Somaliland 1946 - 1967 (modern Djibouti)
- South-West Africa 1915-1990 (modern Namibia)

ASIA
- East Pakistan 1955-1971 (modern Bangladesh)
- West Pakistan (modern Pakistan)
- North Vietnam and South Vietnam zones (joined to form Vietnam in 1976)
- Sarawak and British North Borneo (pre-Malaysian federation) 1963

EUROPE
- USSR (dissolved in 1991)
- Czechoslovakia 1918-1991 (modern Czech Republic and Slovakia)
- Yugoslavia 1922-1992 (modern Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, and Kosovo)
- East and West Germany (1949-1990)
- Romania spelled "Rumania"
- Belarus is referred to as "White Russia"

MIDDLE EAST
- Trucial Oman 1820-1971 (present United Arab Emirates)

PACIFIC
- Netherlands New Guinea 1949-1962 (modern Papua and West Papua in Indonesia)
- Territory of the Papua 1883-1975 (present Papua New Guinea)

SOUTH AMERICA
- British Guiana 1814-1966 (modern Guyana)
- British Honduras 1862-1981 (renamed Belize)

The globe also depicts the names of oceans, seas, currents, and drifts and the limits of floating ice (cool...pun not intended)

Very Good
Globe is in overall Very Good condition. Colors on the globe are relatively bright with no large areas of fading. The continents remain brighter as the blue of the ocean is somewhat dingy. There is wear along the paper gores of the globe and the wear has exposed the white paper underneath (please see photos). It appears that the wear has affected both sides of all the gores on the globe (please see photos). Areas of a darker color transfer can be seen in the oceans; it is especially noticeable just south of the equator through the Tropic of Capricorn. Large tear in the surface paper of the globe just east of Samoa in the Pacific Ocean (last photo). Small area of white paint transfer in the Tuamoto Archipelago in the South Pacific (last photo). Scattered small areas of white paint transfer throughout globe surface; this was most likely the result of the globe spinning and hitting a white painted wall. Light scratches to the surface. Some very small dings to the globe, including several small marks in the Atlantic and two.75 inch long shallow dents in the Indian Ocean just east of Madagascar. Several small marks in the Indian Ocean that resemble brown crayon. The Indian Ocean contains the most wear. The wear to the globe most likely resulted from its use in the classroom. The equator is printed onto the globes surface. Globe comes with original metal time zone disc.

Globe has a very unusual and very cool Mid-Century Danish Modern stand. The stand is made from a piece of blond, turned wood and has a black knob on the side. I believe that the knob allowed the globe move up and down. The knob appears to be loose and the globe is wobbly as the result of the loose knob. Globe can still spin freely and can still be raised up and down. The turned wood stand does have some wear and surface scratches to the wood. A piece of masking tape has been wrapped around the wood stand. There are faint marking in pencil on the tape that read: "Room 7 5th Grade". The masking tape is in several pieces and has left a sun bleached ring around the stand (please see photos). The globe base is constructed from a piece of circular brushed aluminum. Two small areas of discoloration to the interior of the base. Light surface scratching to the metal of base and axis. The wear to the globe and stand do not detract from the overall aesthetic of the globe; rather the surface wear contributes to the vintage character of the piece. An incredibly decorative and desirable globe!

- Shipping price is set for insured USPS Parcel Post due to the size of the globe and the box that it will require. Please allow 6-8 business days for globe to arrive once shipped. This estimate is for the continental US; shipping to Alaska and Hawaii and international destinations will take longer. Shipping time for international customers vary and depend upon the package's destination. International orders: please allow up to eight weeks for your package to complete its journey and clear customs.
- The USPS is subject to weather and volume of mail. The expected delivery dates are estimates provided by USPS. These estimates are usually accurate but occasionally a package may arrive a little earlier or a little later than the given estimate. Please don't be alarmed if it looks like your package has taken up permanent residence in the Denver/Aurora sorting hub. I have found the USPS to be very reliable. However, they may not always scan a package along its shipping route; this is especially common with larger and odd-shaped packages.
- Priority shipping is available for this item, but due to the large size of the globe, Priority shipping will be INSANELY EXPENSIVE! If you would like USPS Priority Mail please contact me PRIOR to purchasing.
- Due to the dimensions of the globe, shipping to Alaska and Hawaii will be an additional $25.00 for a total shipping cost of $49.99. Please contact me prior to purchase and I can adjust the shipping price for you.
- Tracking is included in the shipping price for customers in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and most EU countries
- Insurance is included in the shipping price. Shipping is provided by the USPS (for domestic Priority Mail) and by U-PIC insurance (for items shipped domestic USPS Parcel Post and international orders).
- Due to the purchase price of the globe, this will ship with Signature Confirmation. You will NEED TO SIGN FOR YOUR PACKAGE IN ORDER FOR IT TO BE DELIVERED. This is a requirement of the insurance company that I use and it prevents expensive items from being left on porches, entryways, or other exposed areas.
- Shipping is a bit on the high side due to the dimensions of the globe. The shipping price listed is a realistic estimate. A refund on shipping overages of $2.00 or more will be issued via original payment method. I will only discount shipping if multiple items are purchased. Multiple item shipping discount has already been calculated and no coupon is required. Please do not ask me to discount shipping when purchasing one item. Please do not make an "offer" on shipping. The shipping price is a realistic estimate based on the item's dimensions.

I N T E R N A T I O N A L
- International shipping is available to some countries. Please contact me for a shipping price if your country is not listed. VAT and customs taxes may be added to any international purchases; this is especially true for buyers in the UK and in Scandinavia. International buyers must be familiar with their country's shipping laws and regulations. I have no control over the duties and taxes that your country may charge you once the package has cleared customs. If you have any questions, please contact your local post office. This handy website will help you calculate the cost of potential import duties: http://www.dutycalculator.com
- Due to problems with slow or non-delivery I am unable to ship to Mexico and Brazil.
- Any import fees, brokerage fees, VAT, etc. are separate charges determined by your country's import laws. These fees go directly to your government. I do not receive any of these fees.
- If you do not claim your package for any reason (duties, custom fees, etc.) and your package is returned to me unopened, I will only refund you the cost of the item and that will only be if the box was returned in unopened condition and the item purchased is in the exact same condition as when I posted the package. Shipping fees will not be refunded as I fulfilled my obligation in packaging and shipping the item and have already paid for the non-refundable postage. Please only purchase the item if you are familiar with your country's import duties and are comfortable paying any additional VAT, taxes, of handling fees that YOUR country will charge.
- UK customers: purchases totaling £15 or more are subject to the current VAT rate. An additional brokerage fee or customs charge may also be applied to your purchase. These fees are separate from the shipping price from this shop and are your responsibility. For any questions regarding import fees and the current VAT rate, please contact your local Post Office or visit http://www.royalmail.com/

Although the money might have been deducted from your checking account within 1 or 2 days of the transaction, the money still needs to be credited to my PayPal account. The entire process may take as long as 7 business days, especially if the transaction occurred at the end of the week or over the weekend.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Returns and exchange details

Many of the items listed are vintage pieces and are between 20-100 years old. I give ACCURATE descriptions of each item--I WILL NOT assign damage under the umbrella term "Vintage Condition" as that is extremely subjective wording. Therefore, I do my best to give accurate descriptions of each item. If there is a flaw (chip, crack, missing paint, rust, etc.) I will describe the flaw and include a photo. Please note that all of my items are vintage (pre-loved) and may have slight wear or are handmade and slight imperfections may exist.

Etsy only allows the sale of handmade and vintage goods. According to Etsy, vintage is any item that is over 20 years old. The very nature of vintage is old and most likely used. Please know that when purchasing vintage, you are not purchasing a new item. The item's condition will be provided in the description. Please read the item description thoroughly and use the provided photos as reference. If you have any questions, please contact me prior to purchase.

Please be sure of your selection and email me with any questions or concerns regarding any item. Unless I have grossly misrepresented an item, I will generally not issue refunds. I cannot accept returns due to a change of heart or buyer's remorse.

Most of the items will ship with insurance. If an item was damaged in transit, the customer MUST SUPPLY PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE DAMAGE. A refund will not be processed until photographs are received. NO EXCEPTIONS.

I DO NOT refund cost of shipping for returns. If a refund is given, it will be for the cost of the item only, not for shipping costs.

By purchasing the item, you agree that you have read my store policies and that you understand and agree to the policies. If you have any questions regarding my policies, please contact me.

Threatening, aggressive, or abusive behavior will not be tolerated and will be immediately reported to Etsy.

Refunds will not be given AFTER 45 days.

I am not a scary person; if you have any questions or concerns at any time, please let me know. Good communication is important for a positive experience. If for any reason you are unhappy with your item please contact me so that we may rectify the situation. I try to check my Etsy conversations several times a day, so if you have any questions or concerns, please know that I will respond quickly.

Shipping policies

- Vintage items purchased during the week are usually shipped within two (2) days of payment. If you need your item shipped the same day it was purchased (up until 4.30 pm Monday-Friday Mountain Standard Time), please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

- Items purchased on Friday after 4 pm Mountain Standard Time (MST), Saturday or Sunday will be shipped Monday morning.

- No shipping on Sundays or holidays as the post office is closed.

- Many of the items that I list are heavy, fragile glass and require larger boxes to accommodate plentiful packing materials. In order to keep costs down for my customers, I generally ship United States Postal Service Ground Parcel Post and will combine shipping on most items.

- Etsy does not provide a shipping calculator and the shipping prices listed are only estimates from the United States Post Office rate calculator for Parcel Post and are based on the most expensive rate. If the postage you paid EXCEEDS the actual cost of shipping by $2.00, I will issue a refund for the difference via the original payment method. For example, if the cost of shipping listed is $12.00 and the actual cost of shipping (including insurance, Signature Confirmation, etc.) is only $8.00, I will refund the difference of $4.00 back to you. If, for any reason, the actual cost of shipping is HIGHER than the price charged to the customer, no additional shipping will be charged to the customer.

- I generally ship USPS Ground Parcel Post; please allow up to ten business days for your package to arrive when mailed USPS Ground Parcel Post. If Priority is a reasonable option (usually for smaller items), I will ship Priority.

- I understand that shipping may sometimes seem a bit high but I DO NOT BUILD A PROFIT INTO MY SHIPPING PRICES. I do not charge a handling fee. The cost of postage was recently raised in the U.S. and that accounts for shipping rates being slightly more expensive.

- Every item is shipped with a USPS tracking number, which allows the package to be tracked by the customer.

- The definition of "Postage Paid" includes actual cost of postage, cost of insurance, and cost of signature confirmation (if applicable).

- Every vintage item will ship with insurance.

- Any item over $75 will automatically ship with USPS Signature Confirmation. This is required by the company that insures the packages.

- Once an item is mailed I can guarantee that the post office WILL NOT handle it carefully. Because I love these items as much as you do, I will pack everything with care. Fragile items are packed securely using a variety of packing supplies, including bubble wrap, air-pak, foam peanuts, egg-crate foam, and carved foam mounts. I do not mark anything FRAGILE because I was warned by USPS employees that packages marked FRAGILE are tossed around more than unmarked packages. Insurance for incredibly fragile, delicate, valuable, expensive, heavy, etc. items may have insurance added at the discretion of the seller.

- You will receive an email through the Etsy convo system you once I ship your item. The email will contain the tracking number so you may track your package. If I am delayed in shipping, I will let you know promptly. If you have not received an email, please check your Etsy convos. A copy of the email will also be sent to your email account.

- Items will automatically be shipped with a packing slip that displays the costs of the item and postage. If you have purchased an item as a gift and want a gift invoice (an invoice with the cost of item removed), please let me know in the "Note to Seller" at checkout.

- When possible and appropriate, I try to re-use boxes and some types of packing materials to reduce environmental impact.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
----------------------------------------------
- I DO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY. If you are outside the United States, contact me about shipping rates.

- Please remember that the international shipping rate is an estimate based on size, weight, and destination. If the actual cost of postage paid EXCEEDS $2.00, I will refund the difference via original payment method.

- International customers are responsible for being familiar with their country's postal regulations and customs and are responsible for any and all importation taxes and fees. Please contact your local post office if you have any questions concerning importation taxes/customs fees/brokerage fees and for any shipping restrictions. This handy website will help you calculate the cost of potential import duties: http://www.dutycalculator.com

- Any import fees, brokerage fees, VAT, etc. are separate charges determined by your country's import laws. These fees go directly to your government. I do not receive any of these fees. These fees will need to be paid before you can receive your package. If you refuse your package simply because you do not want to pay the fees and you do not contact me to let me know; I will charge you a 20% restocking fee upon receipt of the unopened unclaimed package. I regret having to implement an international restocking fee; however there has been an increase in refused and returned packages. To save yourself time and money please be aware of your countries import laws and restrictions.

- Due to problems with slow or non-delivery I am unable to ship to Mexico and Brazil.

- UK customers: purchases totaling £15 or more are subject to the current VAT rate. An additional brokerage fee or customs charge may also be applied to your purchase. These fees are separate from the shipping price from this shop and are your responsibility. For any questions regarding import fees and the current VAT rate, please contact your local Post Office or visit http://www.royalmail.com/

- All items mailed internationally will be marked "merchandise" and will have the actual value of the item declared. Please do not ask me to mark an item as a "gift" or to lie about the actual cost of the item. I will not alter the cost of the item because:
1) It's illegal to forge customs information and I don't really want to get into trouble.
2) I have an online shipping account with Etsy and it automatically fills that information into the customs form and I can not change it. So, even if I wanted to change the form, I couldn't change the form.

RESTRICTIONS:
Please be familiar with the prohibitions and restrictions of your country's import laws. Each country have different restrictions and prohibitions. Two international mailing prohibitions of which I am aware:

- I can not ship any toys (that are not made out of wool) to Italy.

- I can not ship any fruit crates to Australia.

However, restrictions and prohibitions may change at any given time.
- Vintage items purchased during the week are usually shipped within two (2) days of payment. If you need your item shipped the same day it was purchased (up until 4.30 pm Monday-Friday Mountain Standard Time), please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

- Items purchased on Friday after 4 pm Mountain Standard Time (MST), Saturday or Sunday will be shipped Monday morning.

- No shipping on Sundays or holidays as the post office is closed.

- Many of the items that I list are heavy, fragile glass and require larger boxes to accommodate plentiful packing materials. In order to keep costs down for my customers, I generally ship United States Postal Service Ground Parcel Post and will combine shipping on most items.

- Etsy does not provide a shipping calculator and the shipping prices listed are only estimates from the United States Post Office rate calculator for Parcel Post and are based on the most expensive rate. If the postage you paid EXCEEDS the actual cost of shipping by $2.00, I will issue a refund for the difference via the original payment method. For example, if the cost of shipping listed is $12.00 and the actual cost of shipping (including insurance, Signature Confirmation, etc.) is only $8.00, I will refund the difference of $4.00 back to you. If, for any reason, the actual cost of shipping is HIGHER than the price charged to the customer, no additional shipping will be charged to the customer.

- I generally ship USPS Ground Parcel Post; please allow up to ten business days for your package to arrive when mailed USPS Ground Parcel Post. If Priority is a reasonable option (usually for smaller items), I will ship Priority.

- I understand that shipping may sometimes seem a bit high but I DO NOT BUILD A PROFIT INTO MY SHIPPING PRICES. I do not charge a handling fee. The cost of postage was recently raised in the U.S. and that accounts for shipping rates being slightly more expensive.

- Every item is shipped with a USPS tracking number, which allows the package to be tracked by the customer.

- The definition of "Postage Paid" includes actual cost of postage, cost of insurance, and cost of signature confirmation (if applicable).

- Every vintage item will ship with insurance.

- Any item over $75 will automatically ship with USPS Signature Confirmation. This is required by the company that insures the packages.

- Once an item is mailed I can guarantee that the post office WILL NOT handle it carefully. Because I love these items as much as you do, I will pack everything with care. Fragile items are packed securely using a variety of packing supplies, including bubble wrap, air-pak, foam peanuts, egg-crate foam, and carved foam mounts. I do not mark anything FRAGILE because I was warned by USPS employees that packages marked FRAGILE are tossed around more than unmarked packages. Insurance for incredibly fragile, delicate, valuable, expensive, heavy, etc. items may have insurance added at the discretion of the seller.

- You will receive an email through the Etsy convo system you once I ship your item. The email will contain the tracking number so you may track your package. If I am delayed in shipping, I will let you know promptly. If you have not received an email, please check your Etsy convos. A copy of the email will also be sent to your email account.

- Items will automatically be shipped with a packing slip that displays the costs of the item and postage. If you have purchased an item as a gift and want a gift invoice (an invoice with the cost of item removed), please let me know in the "Note to Seller" at checkout.
