1st half 20th century, Berlin, in very good condition

Beautiful antique globe of Columbus, Berlin.
The globe was marketed as Model 200 around 1925.
The political and physical map image is very detailed and shows many specific characteristics about the trade/shipping/aviation and railway routes as well as telegraph connections.
Also, deposits of mineral resources and industries are indicated.
The map shows the boundaries of just after World War i. Still visible are Petersburg, Constantinople (now Istanbul).
The globe has a diameter of 33 cm and on its wooden foot it measures a height of about 60 cm. The protractor is metal and in the foot is a working compass.
Despite some slight aging tracks the globe is in a beautiful state with lots of patina.
See the photos, these are a significant part of the description.

Send by registered post; pick up at seller (Globe Museum) in Kolhorn is also possible.

  • I did not receive the order, I paid the product separately and the shipment separately.
    I would like to refund the amounts paid because I did not receive the product.

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    I know something got wrong because I got 1 of the 2 boxes back.
    The shipper wrote: impossible to deliver; nobody at home.
    I immediately sent you an e-mail with some questions about your address and if you got the other box. But I got no answer and also not when I repeated my questions 2 times in e-mail I sent you last june/july.
    I want to help you but if you don't answer my e-mails I can't do anything.
    So please react on my emails and don't give me bad feedback first!
