Private Stash: Wall-Hanging Globe

Saturday sales were a blast and the weather was amazing. Austin and I hit two tag sales, a few garages sales and a bunch of thrift stores. Most of my finds came from the first tag sale, where I snagged a box full of vintage Christmas decorations and an old wall-hanging globe. The globe was my favorite find. I just love that this globe has a bit of rustic charm.

Old Hanging Globe

It is a 12 inch Political Physical Globe by G. W. Bacon & Co, London, and Weber Costello Co, Chicago, ILL. The globe was made in the USA but printed in England.

It was fun trying to date this globe. My guess is it dates somewhere from 1936-1941, because Ethiopia is called Italian East Africa. Why could they not just put a date on the globes? I do like the geography lesson you get when researching them.

I will post pictures from my box of vintage Christmas snags in December. I can’t wait to share them.
