Curatorial Description
9 1/2" Terrestrial papier-mâché sphere (a) and mounted in a brass meridian ring. Housed in a stand (b) with turned maple legs and stretchers, supporting a mahogany horizon ring bearing a hand-colored zodiacal circle and marks the months of the year along the rim. The globe has a trademark reading "Loring's Terrestrial Globe" inside a drawn box with very small lettering, "Boston, Josiah Loring". It shows much of Africa as "Unexplored Regions", and Australia as "New Holland" and Mexico before it was split with the US, dating the globe to no later than the 1848.  It is dirty and the sphere is damaged in places. Overall Dia 13 "; OH 15"
