Straight lines are drawn between the different continents symbolizing navigation lines and telegraph cables. On the continents railways are depicted, besides the countries, main cities and rivers.
the globe arises from a richly decorated metal tripod stand which is decorated with three male faces with moustaches. The globe is made of twelve coloured cartouches and is almost perfect condition.
