RARE 1936 Crams Unrivaled Terrestrial Globe 12 featuring HTF hard to find Silver Oceans. This wonderful machine age styled globe features its rare silver oceans, a black full meridian with chrome edge, a time dial at the North Pole, and a brown painted steel stepped base. Metal shows some paint loss and rust. Globe has minor paper loss in a few spots (most notably The Great Lakes and India), while varnish shows checking and darkening.

This innovative design is from the George F Cram Co. One of only two globe makers to design globes with silver oceans. The political borders on this globe are from 1935 Manchuria is occupied by Japan and renamed Manchoukuo; Iran (Persia) changed its name in 1935; Italian East Africa (1936-41) is not yet so-named; but George F Cram Co.
