Large rotating globe measures 34" in diameter by 43" high; spins and rotates on a metal and mahogany base. Interior lighting element is functional and has been rewired. Bulb is accessed through a removable disc.



From Jensen Globes Inc. Addison Illinois, which is no longer in business. Based upon country and place names, it appears the globe is from around 1958-59. A great piece of history, in unrestored age-appropriate condition.
