Rare Mid Century AJ Nystrom Teaching Globe Item # F2022

Circa 1940s


Can you find Franz Josef Land? Industrial teaching globes always play hard to get, so we were thrilled to locate this one. We believe this rarity was manufactured by A.J. Nystrom & Co. of Chicago Illinois, the U.S.'s oldest publisher of educational maps, globes and geographical materials. Often called "Military" or "Aviation" globes, these large steel globes were more commonly found in classrooms, where the writable surface made it easy for students to try their hands at identifying countries and landmarks. Features a matte, chalkboard-like finish in aqua blue, green and yellow, mounted on an adjustable aluminum axis brace.

  • Historical Style: Industrial / Mid-Century Modern
  • Condition Notes: Wonderfully worn original finish – see all photos for details.
