Antique French Globe on Cast Iron Base ~ Saturday Sale ~

The perfect antique accessory for the worldly gentleman's study bookcase or a library, this antique French globe was created at a time when the gentleman cruised about the world in luxurious ocean liners, and conversed about their travels with the aid of this mapped representation of the world as it was known then. It is interesting to note that during the late 19th century and early 20th century, upon which the data for this globe was based, that the political boundaries of the Americas were much more fixed than those of Europe in its entirety. Original cast iron tripod base with bronzed accent provides stable and stately support.
