Vintage 1930's Globe Stamp Dispenser Art Deco Bauhaus Style Chrome Paperweight For Sale

Vintage 1930's Globe Stamp Dispenser Art Deco Bauhaus Style Chrome Paperweight

Here is a lovely period piece from the 1930's with a geographic motif -- A desk stamp dispenser where a coil or roll of stamps fits into and is manually dispensed from a small 2" diameter globe. The design of this piece is decidedly Art Deco, and in my opinion, although I am no expert, has the look of the German Bauhaus school of design. It is made in Germany by a manufacturer marked "AS Germany", which is stamped on one of the short edges (see Photo 3). The desk piece doubles as a paperweight and weighs about a pound. The underside of the piece looks to be a piece of lead about 1/4" in width (see Photo 5). This piece looks to bemade of chrome, however, it also may be nickel, and bronze. The globe is chrome or nickel with the continents inlaid bronze. The globe is pulled apart from the Equator and a roll of stamps is placed inside and lead out of a thin slit on the globe at right angles to the Equator. This piece is probably part of a set of matching desk pieces, such as a pen holder, but I'm not sure. The globe is surprisingly well labeled, with the oceans, continents,larger countries, and latitude and longitude are labeled, etc. -- all fully readable with the naked eye. The globe sits a little loose on a short cylindrical base and it cannot be tightened as it is attached to the base by a pin, but the globe can be aligned to sit tight on its pedestal. This piece is in top shape. The only issues are three tiny, and I mean tiny, pinhead size dings on the top of the base, and you have to look for them in bight light. There is absolutely no rust or corrosion on this piece. I lightly polished it with Simichrome paste, which is what jewelers use, to show any blemishes and bring out its richness, but it has not been otherwise restored in any way. This item is 4 1/4" x 3 7/8" x 3" tall. A nice piece for a collector of globes, stamps, Art Deco, or desk accessories.

No international buyers -- except Canada -- please. I ship USPS or Fedex depending on which is the more efficient and economical given the item being shipped. This would come USPS Parcel Select. I reimburse immediately via Pay Pal for any shipping fees sent that are not needed. Pay Pal only. I ship within 12-24 hours of payment, so I do require payment within 48 hours. Thanks for looking!
