No breaks or other damage. A tiny spot of very superficial rust here and there that may be removed, if so desired, by polishing with a clear paste wax.
A sweet accent piece for the country kitchen!

This fabulous show globe sports a hand-blown, glass globe that is surrounded and adorned by very fancy, plated brass. The globe measures 22 inches high from the bottom finial to the top. Inclusive of the chain hanger, the globe measures 36 inches from base finial to the tip of original hanger. Condition is excellent with no missing parts, damage or repairs. The interior of the globe has a mild haze that I have chosen not to attempt to clean. The globe holds water quite safely should the next owner choose to fill it with colored liquid, as was the practice during the show globe "heyday". The metal components retain a beautiful patina.
The show globe is quite striking and will be a fabulous addition to any collection!
History: The 20th century provenance of the original show globe pair is documented per the previous owner as follows: The show globe pair resided from 1933 until 1965 at Liberty Drug, 126 Liberty Street, New York City, within very close vicinity of what was to become the location of the World Trade Center. The globes were then passed on in 1965 within the family and were moved to Liberty Drug, 195 Main Street, Chatham, NJ, where they were proudly displayed until 1986 when the most recent family member/owner retired and closed the drug store.
Possibly Staffordshire, the quill holder features polychrome coloration with gold embellishment. Condition is wonderful with no chips, breaks, repairs, or repaints. Some discoloration seen under the base in the area where the quill hole is located. This discoloration may well be due to ink drips from quill or pen landing on the porcelain over many, many years.
A delightful piece!
They were originally assembled using glue, wooden pegs, and square head nails, although many of these were replaced at some point with early round head nails.
Condition is quite good with some age-related separation of wood as seen in photos---nothing that disturbs the structural integrity or visual appeal of this very early pair. Both retain wonderful, all-original patina. Please see photos for a fine representation of all angles and insides and outsides of both boxes. The covers of both boxes fit nicely despite the crooked appearance suggested in my photos!
Measurements are 6 inch diameter by 2.5 height and 5.5 inch diameter by 2 inch height. The smaller box fits nicely into the larger or they may be stacked one atop the other for display!
This hand blown, 12 inch tall bottle has a deep pontilled base and is in fine condition. The ground glass stopper has a few unobtrusive interior edge chips.
The label under glass (LUG) applied label is in very good condition, complete and some minor ‘crackling’ of the painted surface.
When viewing the glass label "in person", it is quite appealing and displays beautifully. Please note that the elongated, reddish mark seen on the label is a function of poor photography - it is only a reflection of another object in the room- and not a stain!
EUPHORBIA PILUIFERA - noted in an 1891 JAMA abstract: Quite recently, at the suggestion of my friend Dr. E. T. Sabal, of Jacksonville, Florida, I have used the remedy named, euphorbia pilulifera, for the relief of a most stubborn case of hereditary asthma, and the results are such that I feel warranted in calling the attention of the profession to it, and also making an effort to compile some statistics which will be of service to us in the future. It is a popular domestic remedy in Australia, and has been used for the relief of coughs, colds and other like disturbances of the air-passages, but more especially in the treatment of asthma.
