Globes are not something I run across often. So, when I saw the globe today at my usual haunt, I had to pick it up.
Was it because I just saw Kelly at Eclectically Vintage's blog post on globes? Maybe partly, but I can't handle a globe collection. I think they may take up too much space here.
The price tag on the globe said $10. Not bad. I think old globes are worth that. It was a very unusual color for a globe. The base and the oceans were gray or silver. It just may blend in my decor.
What do you think? Is it a silver ocean globe or just age faded or darkened? I did read on the internet that silver ocean globes are rarer than blue ocean globes but I didn't really see a value.
I am not real sure on the age but I know that Persia was Iran on the globe so it's newer than 1935. Germany is one country, so maybe it's between 1935 and 1945?
It's not in perfect condition, but good. Some rust on the base and the map seams are a little curled in spots.
Hmmm, how can I use this globe in a vignette?
