Vintage Globe Trio - Earth, Moon and Stars - Moon and Celestial Globes and Earth Globe Bank

This is a set that is next to impossible to come by! Although there are moon and earth globes around, the celestial globes are few and far between!! I put these three together as a set as they are very hard to find as it is and as a complete set it is next to impossible!! This trio is made up of a Moon Globe, a Celestial Globe and an Earth Globe Bank!! All made either by or for Replogle in the 1960s and 1970s!

This is an authentic 6 inch model 1:22,809,600 or 1 inch = 360 Statute Miles moon globe produced prior to the first Apollo 1 touchdown in 1969 by Replogle Globes. Division of Meredith Corp. It is a VERY EARLY Moon Globe. It was produced prior to the manned landings in 1969. It features a half meridian without detail and is finished in a matt gold. The globe lists the proposed Apollo landing sites using symbols. It does list the USA Ranger Missions along with the Russian Lunik 2 site the first unmanned spacecrafts to reach the Moon. The globe labels everything on the moon. It features a photo transfer surface with the notation under the legend that "Farside detail based on actual photographs". This is the first of the lunar globes that fails to give credit to the Russian photographs of the far side. This is evidence of the cold war period in which this globe was produced and makes this globe an important historical piece!!

The 6" celestial orb in a beautiful bold blue and gold coloring identifies constellations, the Milky Way and much more. The Globe is hollow metal and lithographed. It features a half meridian without detail and finished in a matt gold!! The celestial globe was produced by Scan Globe of Denmark for Replogle in the 1970s.

Celestial Globes are much more uncommon than the Terrestrial globes or even the moon globes as globe manufacturers produced fewer models.

The earth globe is labeled the Revere and is not only a globe but doubles as a bank. This great little gem was produced by Replogle in the 1970s and is done in beautiful beige and earth tones.
It too features a half meridian without detail and is also finished in a matt gold tone!

All three globes are in very good to excellent condition. The earth globe has no dents and only minimal wear. There is one very small spot of oxidation that is located in the Pacific Ocean and does not impact the display of this globe whatsoever! The moon globe alo has no dents and extremely minimal wear in the form of very light scratches. They have to be searched for! The Celestial globe does have one dent located right below Cassiopeia. This globe does have very light oxidation around the equator but again nothing at all that impacts the display of this lovely globe!! The bases of all three are in pristine condition with no blemishes at all!!!

All three of these globes stand approximately 8.5" high with a base that is approximately 4" wide at the bottom

If you are looking for that special something, that something that you won't see in every collection, that this is one set of globes you want to take home today!!

As always, ENJOY!!!
