Last Sunday we went to an Emerald Estate Sale in Falls Church, Virginia and found a vintage Replogle Globe. It is a 12” topographical globe, which means that it has both raised and indented relief to portray the world’s landscape, and it is has deep rich coloring; However its best feature is that it is a lighted globe, giving off a subtle light when plugged in. Like most people, I can’t just walk by a globe without spinning it around and taking a quick look at the different countries. The bad thing is that most of us can’t tell one globe from another . . . guess I should have paid more attention in geography class while I was in school.
Luckily for us, we live in the era of technology where knowledge is at our fingertips; through the computer and the Internet. We can look up just about anything on the web including information on how to date a vintage globe. As it turns out, Replogle Globes, which has been in the business of making globe since the 1920’s, has a nice webpage detailing countries to look for when dating a globe. If Tuvalu is shown in the South Pacific, then your globe was made after 1978; if Democratic Republic of the Congo is depicted, then it was made before 1971 are just a couple of examples that you can find on their website.
