UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS..............

A 32" X 39" X 1/2" FLAT (GOLD COLORED METAL) WALL GLOBE, ENCASED/FRAMED BY AN EXQUISITLY DESIGNED PRESS BOARD TYPE MATERIAL.

THE DESIGN IS TITLED/LABELED: ORBIS TERRARUM DESCRIPTIO DUOBIS PLANIS HEMISPHARIIS.

THIS DESIGN SEEMS TO DEPICT SEVERAL ERAS TO INCLUDE: NOSTRADOMUS, ADAM & EVE, EARLY AMERICAN AND/OR PILGRIM, EARLY DAY KING/ROYALTY ON THEIR THRONE, ANGELS W/TRUMPETS, MORTALS LOOKING UPWARD TO GOD ON A CLOUD AND OTHERS BEGGING FOR MERCY TO INCLUDE THE DEAD/SKELETONS. T IS A DEFINITE ATTEMPT AT SYMBOLISM OF SOMETHING BY THE ARTIST WITH THE WORK PORTRAYED ON THIS UNIQUE DESIGN.

DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSION OF THE STORY BEING TOLD BY THE INVENTOR OF THIS MASTERPIECE. I HAVE TRIED TO CAPTURE THE SCENES WITH SEVERAL PHOTO SHOTS WHICH ARE ATTACHED FOR YOUR VIEWING BELOW.

AGE = ??? / ANTIQUISH LOOKING

MAKE OR ARTIST: ???

CONDITION: EXTREMELY NICE, BUT NOT WITHOUT SPARATIC FLAWS THROUGHOUT.

SPECIFICALLY: THE FRAMES EDGE (ENTIRELY) IS FRAYED AND/OR MARRED, BUT NOT CRACKED OR BROKEN AND COULD BE EASILY REMEDIED/RESTORED TO A VERY DESIRABLE STATE.

THE BACK OF FRAME IS STAINED AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS.

THE METAL WALL MOUNTS HAVE SOME RUST.

HOWEVER .........IS STRUCTURALLY STRONG AND OF VERY NICE APPEAL IN ITS PRESENT STATE.

THE ARTWORK IS IMPECCABLE.

AND WOULD ASSUME ITS VALUE TO BE HIGH

THOUGHTS : REMEDY ITS MINOR FLAWS WITH A NON-CLASHING MOLD AROUND THE FRAYED EDGING AND SOME OTHER MINOR TOUCHUP. IN DOING SO; NOT IN ANY WAY COMPROMISING THE INIMITABLE ARTWORK ON THIS PIECE OF HISTORY, WITH THE GOAL BEING TO SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCE ITS VALUE!!!

*I HAVE GIVEN AS MUCH INFORMATION AS I CAN THINK TO GIVE FOR AIDING IN YOUR DECISION. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO INQUIRE FURTHER AND I'LL ANSWER TO THE BEST OF MY NON-PROFESSIONAL ABILITY.

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING!!!
