0.00
The Globe offers excellent visual history by displaying metropolitan centers of the past, such as Constantinople (changed to Istanbul in1929), and Empires we only read of in our history books. Even Central Australia which existed for only a glimps in time is documented (1926-31) on the map. Weber Costello was one of the finest Globe manufactures of the early 20th century. The art of hand applying paper gores to an plaster orb are demonstrated at its best, as all are perfectly aligned, making the map appear almost seamless. Even though Weber Costello produced most of their own maps, the one on this globe are imported from G.W. Bacon & Co of London, England. Known for their superb engraving skills and attention to detail combined with Weber Costello's beautiful mount makes this sphere a desirable collector pieces for any globe enthusiast and certainly one of our favorite pieces. Standing 36 inches tall and with a diameter of 24 inches (orb is 18 inches), this globe will be quite impressive in a Library or Office setting. This sophisticated Depression Era Model offers an elegant Duncan Phyfe styled Mahogany base with solid brass lion's paw tips and casters . Ornate details on the base celebrate superb wood working skills of the past. The horizon ring and heavy cast iron meridian add substance. This globe is a future heirloom for generations to come, allowing to travel the world of History and Geography with your fingertip. $2,900 — Item #: OT18WCLIB26 - SOLD
