I was first impressed by this huge globe 20 years ago in a lovely mansion here in St. Paul. After storage of almost equal length, this robust and rather Art Deco style model is now available to you.
Called by some” the Eisenhower globe” because the black and white photo of him with a similar globe standing and pondering the world.
Considered by some to be the most sought after floor globe, this model was sold in the mid 20th century as the “executive model” or a ” boardroom” globe. Perhaps “chief executive ” would have been more accurate.
Now offered by us for your personal or business use and enjoyment, this could be the the dynamic point of interest in your study or offices where thoughts of world affairs and travel are often shared.
The globe diameter is 32″ on a dark mahogany lobed oblong stand with overall length of 40″. The index rings are cast brass on scrolled cast brass terminals over reeded standards. For convenience, casters are hidden underneath. Minor flaws.
