Denoyer-Geppert antique plaster globe with a metal cradle. This is one of the companys most celebrated globes--a HUGE celestrial globe. There are some stains and some paint and some damage on the globe--but all captured in the pictures. I turned the globe and took pictures, they are not all of the same image!
Here is some history of the company. The globe has a base of solid cast iron and the colorizationwhile faded by timeis lovely and varied.
Philip Denoyer himself is credited right on the label as the editor of the piece. He would remain president of the company, more in an advisory role, until just a few months before his death in 1964, age 88. Denoyer wrote in his 1931 manual.

It was while teaching a course therelegend has itthat Denoyer first crossed paths with a globe salesman named Otto E. Geppert, whod traveled up from Chicago to sit in on the class. Geppert was just a kid fresh out of school himself, and was employed by A. A Chicago mapmaker that had an exclusive distribution deal with the revered W. Johnston firm of Edinburgh, Scotland. Nystrom, it should be noted, also still exists today in a loose approximation of its original form, self-identifying as the United States oldest publisher of wall maps and globes for classroom use (founded in 1903).
