A German silver-gilt table globe circa 1980, stamped
Item Details
Description
A German silver-gilt table globe
circa 1980, stamped 925 STERLING with lion rampant, incused 10430
The sphere of planet Earth on a stand, all parts gilded, with engraved continents to the globe body and named in German, the ability to smoothly spin, mounted on a fish-form stem upon a stepped circular spreading base, loaded, height 28cm, diameter 14cm, weight total 53oz.
Condition
Stamped 925 STERLING with lion rampant to the top of the foot, handwritten Ib901B below the STERLING (possibly a stock number?), incuse stamped 10430 underneath base.
The gilding has rubbed off on the foot edge in one area, and also in a few areas on the globe, in particular on the meridian lines. These appear as darker brown areas, examples of which can be seen in the attached photos.
The spinning mechanism works well and has a smooth movement.
There is light scratching on the foot, commensurate with age.
Overall this globe is in good condition, with no significant flaws.
