9" Cram's Silver Oceans Globe

9" Cram's Silver Oceans Globe


The silver ocean globes by The George F. Cram Co. were only made for a few years as the silver color was expensive to produce. The 9" size is also not commonly seen. Add to that the excellent condition of the orb and you get something quite special.

The globe features a full, cast iron meridian in black surrounding a pressboard orb. The seam between the hemispheres is covered with strip of tape with no missing sections. The short wave radio stations that are shown in red are still very bright. There are two small places where the color has been removed and can be seen in the pictures. Also, the Northern Hemisphere is soiled (very common) and could use a professional cleaning. Overall, the globe in very good condition.

Dates to around 1935-36 as Persia has already changed to Iran, but Burma has not broken away from India, nor has Germany annexed Austria or Czechoslovakia.
