FOR SALE ☞ Vintage Made in Japan Desk Tin Globe Pen Holder
DESCRIPTION ☞ A handsome little made in Japan tin globe with pen holder on a stand. We estimate this item to be made in the late 1940's to 1950's. The globe can spin on its holder and has fine details written on it. The pen holder also moves on a pivot and comes with a vintage pen. The bottom of stand has a felt liner to prevent it scratching a wooden surface. The globe is blue with multi colors to represent different countries. Written in a white square on the globe is "Made in Japan" with an eagle above a globe. The stand and pen holder are black with the felt being a faded green.
DIMENSIONS ☞ Approximately 6 inches tall without pen by 4.5 inches wide
CONDITION ☞ This vintage globe and pen holder desk set is in excellent condition. It shows very little signs of use and wear with a slight patina due to age and application. All the colors on the globe are crisp and not faded. The pen holder and stand have no scratching, chips or repairs. Please see photos. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings. Have a question about this item or want to see more photos?
