This globe is from 1918 to 1920,  It shows Petrograd , Russian not yet URSS  ( 1914/1924), Yugoslavia is not yet formed so it is pre1920, Hungary is independent. Please feel free to Email with question to insure accuracy  , we can check the railways line or country boundaries . The surface condition is  good , no scratches  , there is some restoration over a  part  of  Congo  over the Equator , some oxidation ( see first and third pictures ).  Overall the countries are easy to read and discern. The printing is really nice and well done , this type of globe belong to the tradition of globe making of the 19th century : 12 full gores on a solid ball of plaster .The wood mount is Napoleon III in style ( Violet-Leduc) but was in use until the early 20th. The Forest company is a very well know French company which produced until the 1950's and become " Taride" in later date.  It is in excellent condition ,  I believe  is a good value in term of  historical content and decorative cachet , small globe are scarce compared to the large school globe 
Size H.10 x D.5 , good condition , some stable crack line on the equator line , some oxidation in Africa , minor touch up in Congo,see pictures
