I always used to admire the small gemstone globes in Jewellers windows. As I was trying to bid on an airplane at an auction in Essex, I wanted to try out my bid online, so I sometimes try another piece first. And the first lot was a large jewelled globe, which it appears I will get delivered in a few days, so I wanted to post this photo first. I may have to sell it, but then again, I'll not be too hasty as aeroplanes sometimes go good with globes.
The globe was received and it is 18 inches in height which is as big as the gemstone globes got to be.

In my TV room I have several of my buys in collecting airplane models & the airplane ashtrays I collect. I have got some good advice and I am now happy with my collection as I also have some metal desk display models which are quite valuable, a good investment and hard to find.

    Yes, I know what it feels like. When we were kids we got some clothes and maybe one toy present for Christmas. I had to go over to the neighbours to visit to see all the toys I dreamed of ! Thanks for the comment and the love Eye.

    Thanks propjet, was going to sell it soon but trouble sending Canadian mail insured especially to the buyers in Europe. I guess it would have to be UPS carrier. I have one that is close to mint with the book it came.

    In such beautiful condition it would fetch big $$$ (Canadian of course) on eBay!
