French Terrestrial Globe on Ebonized Wooden Base by Cartographer J. Forest

US$1,195

About

This papier mâché terrestrial globe from the early 20th century was edited by the renowned French cartographer J. Forest and features not only location names, but also ocean currents and train line routes of the period. A piece of world history, the date of this globe can be pinpointed due to several indicators. This globe was created before the year 1930 since the cities of Istanbul and Izmir in Turkey still retain their former names of Constantinople and Smyrna respectively. The change of name for the Chinese capital Peiping to Peking in 1928 dates this globe to the late 1920s. Resting on a turned and ebonized wooden base with a bronze arm that holds the globe at a tilt, this piece is sure to bring a sense of history into the home as a unique desk accessory. 13 inches high.
