This is a nice - rather retro looking - globe with a heavy wooden base and semi ring. The map image is really vivid showing all the countries in great detail and depth. The globe is dated in the 1960 since Israel is shown as well as East Pakistan. Another tool for dating this globe is its style. This is quite a powerhouse of a globe in the sense that it demands to be looked at whereas some of our other globes prefer to live in relative piece, only revealing their secrets to someone who carefully studies them.
In vintage but mint condition. Please take a look on our blog to find out a bit more on globes.
