C1908 W A K Johnston 8 Inch Terrestrial World Globe for AJ Nystrom Gothic Finial
This is a wonderful antique (c 1908) terrestrial 8 inch table globe that stands on a cast iron tripod table stand with paw feet. At first I thought that the gothic style finial was a replacement, but Ive recently seen another W & A K Johnston globe of similar age and on a tripod stand with the same exact unusual finial. This globe was printed and made by W. The 8 diameter globe stands approximately 15 high to the top of the finial.

Based on the map, I estimate it to be dated around 1908. The globe shows Italian Somaliland (1907) and Belgian Congo (1908), though no Union of South Africa (1910). Also, I do not see Bulgaria (1908).

The globe has coated paper gores over pasteboard. It stands on an offset bracket (appears to be a claw holding an orb) mounted on an iron tripod table stand with paw feet, and with a pointed gothic finial. While this globe displays beautifully, it has suffered from some restorations. There are a few separation cracks in the globe that have been filled, but dont sit flat. Some of the scuffs in the globe have been painted it looks quite good from afar but seems more obvious when close up.

The stand is in great condition and is truly beautiful and decorative. Over the next few weeks, Ill be listing a lot of the world globes that Ive been collecting for the past 30+ years. Many of these are quite old and rare so please keep watching.
