The gorgeous Repogle 12" Globemaster floor globe is in very good to great condition. The beautifully turned wooden spindle has a medium brown stain. The three wooden feet make a very stable foundation from which to display this gorgeous globe. Also, the globe has a terrestrial relief design which simply means that different elevations can be detected by seeing and touching the surface. In addition, this gorgeous floor globe has an adjustable metal frame that is firmly attached to the top of the spindle. The metal frame adjusts and the globe rotates inside the adjustable frame so much so that nearly every country is flat. The off-white ocean is very nice and does not appear to have a lot of age on the color.
This is a very rare floor globe because it is so clean and without rust on the adjustable metal frame. Also, the globe actually rotates smoothly and does not rub against the surrounding metal frame. In addition, the single screw that holds the brown metal frame to the top of the spindle is tight and not wobbly. The screw is not glued in place but can actually be tightened or loosened to remove the adjustable metal frame. Also, the legs are tight and very stable.
This particular Repogle 12" Globemaster dates somewhere between 1993 when the Czech Republic came from Czechoslovakia and 1997 when Zaire became the Republic of Congo. The Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Zaire are mentioned on this gorgeous globe.
While the majority of the globe is is in excellent condition, there are some little places at the center where the globe actually fits together. The center has places where one side is a little pushed in or taller than the other which is most likely due to the aging process and particular interior climate. Also, some of the tape has wear in the center where the two halves of the globe come together. This is very hard to notice unless the globe is inspected up close with a light and by touch. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous floor globe. As can be seen from the pictures, the bottom of the legs are in great condition. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on this beautiful floor globe - mainly in the form of slight distress on the three feet and some very small places on the adjustable metal frame. Also, there is one tiny wooden plug missing from one of the holes near the bottom.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous Repogle 12" Globemaster terrestrial relief floor globe are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous floor globe. Also, the study or office would welcome this gorgeous floor globe for its slender single spindle design which allows it to be displayed in tighter spaces. In addition, this would be a great globe to display on a corner accent table as the separate feet will still allow a lot of surface area.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous Repogle 12" Globemaster floor globe for its very good to great condition, stable design, and overall clean appearance.
The gorgeous Repogle 12" Globemaster floor globe weighs approximately 57 oz.
The rotating and adjustable floor globe measures a total of appropriately 34" tall to the top of the metal frame when it is adjusted to the top.
The turned wooden spindle stands 20 7/8" tall from the floor to the top of the spindle where the adjustable metal frame attaches.
This a 12" diameter globe.
The distance from one side of the metal frame to the other side of the metal frame measures approximately 13".
The three wooden feet measures approximately 15 5/8" apart from tip to tip.
Please note that this particular floor globe will be shipped with the metal frame removed from the top of the wooden spindle. To attach the metal frame back to the top of the spindle simply requires the provided screw to be put back through the hole in the frame and turned by the fingers until it is tight enough to place a dull butter knife in the slotted screw to carefully finish tightening - without over tighten. The reason we believe it should be shipped this way is simple due to the fact that we do not want to cause stress on the single screw and screw-hole at the top of the spindle.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
