The papier-mâché globe is mounted on a beautiful tripod in bronzed cast iron.
It is a winding, indeed the foot is older, from the 19th century and more particularly it is a model of the Maison Emile Berteaux in Paris.
At one time the globe had to be placed there to replace an old globe perhaps more damaged. This base gives it an extra soul and a lot of charm.
We are in 1960 at the dawn of African decolonization, besides the colonies of French Equatorial Africa (AEF), French West Africa (AOF) and Algeria are still in the same green block but the names of the future countries are already inscribed there.
Dirt, no holes, missing from the Bahamas. The globe is damaged all around the equator, at the junction of the maps, the paper rises.
Total height: 53 cm - Height of the base: 21cm - diameter: 27 cm - circumference: 110cm
A fine example.
