Vintage World Globe

R480.00 R288.00

Growing up we had the identical Reader’s Digest world globe at home, and it always felt very special – even otherworldly – to me! Maybe that’s where my love of globes came from? Ironic that I like globes so much given that my knowledge of geography is pretty much zero – clearly I spent too much time admiring the aesthetics of the globe, rather than paying attention to where everything sits! But they really are beautiful objects, with their undulating surfaces, and sea of blue and greens, and I love the classic wooden base on today’s globe, which was made by Replogle, the world’s largest globe manufacturer. For the most part our globe is in good condition, although there is a small ding right in the middle of Sinkiang (Xinjiang!), as well as some minor wear to other parts, but for its age (which is the region of 40-50 years) it’s not doing too badly at all!

Dimensions: 40cm tall x 30cm in diameter
