Early 20th Century French Terrestrial Globe on Iron Stand Signed A. Jeande

Crafted in France, circa 1910, the elegant piece sits on a gilt painted cast iron tripod base decorated with paw feet and lion head figures. The stem holds the 12″ swivel globe which is signed A. Jeande. Displaying the world as it was around the turn of the 20th century, this globe was created by the French cartographer R. Bardot. This globe is marked A.
