Incredibly Rare Advertising Globe for Universal Stoves and Ranges; Circa 1900

325.00

I love these small globes! In addition to the great graphics and overall aesthetics, they are the perfect size to the fill the gaps between your larger globes! And this advertising piece is one of the rarest tin globes you could have in your collection.

Released by Chicago based Cribben & Sexton Company as a small coin bank to promote their line of stoves and ranges; there were much fewer of these produced than your standard globes. As a result, these rarely come up for sale.

The age of the globe is a little hard to pinpoint as there are no cities or countries labeled; most likely it is from right around 1900 though as the company was in full swing at that time. The graphics and production style also hint at this time period.

The orb is made of hollow spun tin with a lithographed map. The continents and oceans are labeled and major rivers are visible. “Universal Stoves and Ranges” is printed 3 colored letters in the Pacific Ocean. Orb features a black star over the South Pole and a coin slot near the North Pole. The globe is set in a metal mounting that is most likely not be the original base. Diameter of the orb is 2 inches with a total height (including base) of 4 inches.

The globe is in excellent condition with very minor wear around the equator; colors are brilliant and the text is sharp. Globe is priced as if the base is not original.

Well packed, the globe will ship domestically for $9.00 and internationally for $18.00.
