Miniature globe on an unusual decorative thermometer columnar stand.  The terrestrial globe is surmounted by a spherical finial, on a small stand with a brass rod horizon supported by two brass rod quadrants, on a red metal round base.  The globe sits in an open brass dish raised on two brass rods on either side of a central glass column enclosing a mercury thermometer, with a scale calibrated and marked R and F.  At the bottom of the thermometer assembly, the stand is decorated with pair of scrolled griffin head mounds, ending in a round red metal stepped base.

The globe identifies place names in German.  Oceans are cream-colored, and some geographic entities are faintly shaded or outlined.

J. Felkl was a major European producer of globes.  Read more about Felkl in our Guide to Globe Makers.
