    Description

    Goldthwaite Collapsible Satin Globe. This is a real novelty and conversation piece which we suspect was produced in small quantities. It is similar to an umbrella in construction, but is a collapsible globe covered in multicolored satin. It measures 24" from knob handle to tip, pierced at top for possible suspension. The manufacturer's logo, printed on the fabric itself, reads: "Goldthwaites Handy Patent Folding Globe. The Most Valuable & Best Globe Made. Patented & Revised to 1902. Patented Aug. 8, 1898 Chicago". There is some light wear to the seams here-and-there, most pronounced at the very top, but it is remarkably well-preserved. Colors are likewise strong with no fading.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
