Delightful 2 1/2" diameter globe stands on a light metal base and is overall 6" high. Despite a certain lack of geographical detail due to the size of the sphere, the major political boundaries are easily discernible. The base has been roughly soldered to the meridian in an old repair and there is a tiny bit of paper damage on the south pole, else very good.
