Size 5 1/2" tall globe (standard)
Type Extended Base
Condition Very Good 

A Canadian Government Railway "CGR" Amber Cast Extended Base Globe in a Hiram Piper Tall globe Frame. The globe is a nice example of an extended base Canadian globe. It has a faint round panel often found on Canadian globes. The glass is thick and it has definitely seen use. The CGR lettering is good. It does not photograph well but in person it is very nice. Extended base cast amber globes are difficult to find. Just the Grand Trunk comes immediately to mind. The frame is not Railway marked. It clearly has the HLPiper hallmark stamped in the top. It definitely has the "E. T. Wright", Canadian look to it. This is a very nice globe with no issues. Very Good condition.
