Globe Novelties

Over Centuries, the globe as a symbol has been used and abused. From advertising, propaganda and marketing tools to toy and world fair spheres, the diversity of globe related products is immense. Globes have been produced in many different forms, shapes and sizes, may it be a 2.5″ pencil sharpener or an 18″ slated black globe to teach geography. The USSR government produced a small globe with a little red rocket attached to it celebrating the first flight in space by a human. This was countered by the US Moon Globes showing current and “future” landing sites of the Apollo program. Money banks, wind-up tin toys, partial lamp mounts, bookends, puzzles, advertisement gadgets and more, there are many versions and forms the terrestrial world globe has been used and at times abused for. What fantastic conversation pieces!
