However, this logic does not apply to globes or maps. I love them. I'll search the world for fine, original pieces. And I'm even willing to spend money on them. When it comes to globes and maps, consider me antique phobia free.
A couple of years ago, I was a world traveler without a globe of my own. So, I did some safe searching online (that way I'm not required to step one foot into an antique mall). I immediately fell in love with this spherical specimen. The condition was excellent and the land mass colors were in warm earth tones that fit in perfectly with my living room decor. But, it was the black seas that truly sold it for me.
Do you have a favorite vintage find?
