It was designed to be used in schools, offices and in the home. It has a nearly unblemished thick, curvilinear lucite hanger and base resembling a piece of nearly melting, wavy toffee candy, which has not yellowed as some lucite does from exposure to ultraviolet light and often exposure to the pollutants of cigarette smoke over time.
This lucite has nice, unmarked edges and is without deep abrasions, nicks or other substantial damage to its transparent acrylic surfaces. There are a few, very minor superficial scuffs which can only be seen upon quite close inspection.
These would hardly constitute appreciable damage but they're mentioned in the spirit of transparency and full disclosure. There's also a slightly opaque streak running down the exterior facia of the lucite hanger.Again, this is only noticeable upon quite close inspection. No attempt has been made to buff it out or to diminish this area. The lithographed globe itself has a wonderful metallic sheen and is very clean. Just an outstanding Modernist vintage world globe with choice lucite hanger and base and very clean lithographed globe surfaces. Very Good to Excellent overall vintage condition.
