By Popular Demand! Well, at Least a Few Folks Were Asking to See It. The Newest Addition to the Lighted Globe Collection. Status: Hey! It Even Works!
This is the Globe I picked up at the South County antique mall yesterday. Looks good enough as just a globe. Just a regular ol' globe. Nice base though, that chrome is pretty sharp!
But check it out! Plug this baby in and it lights up a room. It's hard to get a good
picture of it lit up though. The "lighted" pics just don't really do it justice.
Looks like this might be from the mid seventies. I did a little "timeline" research
here, but got bored before I could nail it down. I might try again later.
There are a few condition issues with the "wrap" coming off in a few places and
some scotch tape holding it down too. No biggie. It's pretty amazing even so. The
chrome needs a good polishing too. It's gonna clean up nice.
