This is a vintage lucite paperweight with an encased globe. The lucite is an octagon prism, the globe is a ball with the old fashioned world maps brightly colored. These maps are not current by any means, I think they date to the age of Exploration. The labels seems to be in Italian, and there are large tall ships sailing the oceans. The paperweight is 2 1/16" tall and 1 15/16" wide. It is not signed or marked. There is a chip in the lucite on a bottom corner.
