I was a 'happy chappy' when I came across this world globe. Even though it is not vintage it appeals to me because it illuminates in the dark! It has a plastic base and meridian but the ball is made of a thin metal. The same globe is being sold on bidorbuy for over R900 (brand new).
'Since their founding in 1955, Nova Rico has been a pioneer in the production of decorative, educational, and antique-style globes. Nova Rico produces high-quality globes for adults and children alike in the educational, toy, and decorative markets. All Nova Rico globes are made of vacuum-formed vinyl, as opposed to the paperboard graphics commonly found in other globe products. This gives their globes a clean look with crisp graphics and without interruption along the equator. All Novo Rico brand globes are made in Italy and all political and geographical data are continuously updated.'
