Inscriptions on globe: He who eats may share / Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself / The world is now one neighborhood / The Golden Rule would make it one brotherhood.
Inscriptions on base: It is more blessed to give than to receive / The Golden Rule Foundation / Give us this day our daily bread / A coin a meal may save a life / Eat your bread in solitude and you will be fed but share your loaf if you would know the flavor of good bread. Grace Noll Crowell — American Mother 1938.

The quote from Grace Noll means that it can be no older than 1938 and the map supports this reasoning. Europe is shown with pre World War 2 borders and Iran is shown instead of Persia (1935).
