The gores (maps on the globe’s surface) were printed by the London firm of G.W. Bacon, imported and manufactured into the globe by the American school supply firm Weber Costello for school supply company Denoyer-Geppert. Oceans are green (blue which has yellowed over time), geographic entities are various cream and green tones. A reference key indicates railways, ocean currents, isothermal lines and the International Date Line. Leningrad is shown, which dates this globe to after 1924, and Constantinople rather than Istanbul is shown, indicating a date before c. 1930-32. This model Art Nouveau stand was popular for 18-inch American globes, designed and first manufactured at the turn of the 20th century, continuing in use by various globe makers to about 1930.
