This quaint antique globe is in fabulous condition! I used a design by Kathryn Wrona for painting. This little flock of five sheep is "flocking to America". The lead sheep is carrying a pennant flag that waves in the wind. I positioned the flock so that they are approaching the east coast of the United States. A hand stained and hand lettered tag hangs from the top. This piece measures approximately 12 1/2" x 9". I have included information I have found about the globe below:

This antique terrestrial desk globe is constructed with 12 lithograph, coated paper gores over pasteboard and was produced ca. 1940. Raised on an offset central axis mounted on a single short, angled metal pillar held by a round metal stand. The oceans are finished in turquoise with the locations of the Prime Meridian and the International Date Line shown. The names and direction of the currents of all the oceans and seas are in white. This example, with a time dial at the North Pole, shows Indochina, Manchuria. The Sargasso Sea is prominently displayed in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and an analemma is located in the South Pacific. Notations at the north and south poles state the years and methods of travel for individuals who first explored those regions. The simple title cartouche is located in the Indian Ocean.
