condition: good
make / manufacturer: Kalifano
There are many of these lapis globes for sale, but few that are this large. The circumference at the equator is 40.5" so the globe is almost 13" in diameter. With the base, it stands about 2' tall. The globe is in good condition with a bit of patina on the brass stand. I did notice a flaw around the Kobyaysky district in Siberia. Meteor impact? See 4th photo, by the "A" in RUSSIA, with a short fault line running down the 135th meridian. Very disappointing to discover, but other than that, it's a beautiful globe.
