Vintage West German Globe

R400.00

This is the first time I’ve come across a world globe by German company, JRO Wechselbild. I think all the globes that I’ve sold in the past have been either been made by Replogle (America) or Scanglobe (Denmark). This German version is a bit smaller than the other globes that I’ve sold, but the fact that it lights up makes up for that minor shortcoming (if you view it as a shortcoming at all!). There’s some wear to the actual globe, as is often the case with vintage globes, but no real damage – except to the electrical cord where a small bit of the plastic has worn through exposing the insulated wire inside. I don’t think there are any safety issues here though, but if it bothers you I’m sure it wouldn’t take someone who’s handy with electrics very long to sort it out.

A nice simple globe that would make a wonderful night light for a little girl or boys’s bedroom.

Dimensions: 33cm tall x 24cm in diameter
