I love these small toy globes! In addition to the great graphics and overall aesthetics, they are the perfect size to the fill the gaps between your larger globes!
This globe is labeled “Made in Japan” but does not have any company markings or logos. The map has minimal detail in the land masses but it does feature ocean currents which make it look more complete.
The age of the globe is a little hard to pinpoint as there are few cities or countries labeled. My best guess is that it dates to around 1928 as Leningrad (1924) is shown and the country is now identified as USSR (1926), and Peking has not changed to Beijing (1929).
The orb is made of hollow spun tin with a lithographed map. It sits on a bent wire frame. Diameter of the orb is about 1.5 inches with a total height (including base) of 2.25 inches.
The globe is in excellent condition with very minor wear around the equator; colors are brilliant and the text is sharp.
Well packed, this artifact will ship domestic for $9.00, international shipping is $18.00.
