Zelezny brod crystal globe and neodymium moon help please
« on: February 25, 2012, 10:28:58 PM »
Calling all Zelezny Brod experts!

I've had this pair of globes since around 1990. The earth is crystal (?) and the globe is neodymium. There is no signature I can see.

They came boxed and this sticker was on the box. Can anyone make any sense of it?

Does it give any clues to age?

Interesting... I would have never thought these globes were made at ZBS.  Just to satisfy my own curiosity, can I see a picture of the whole box, please? 

By the way, compared to earth, that moon is rather large, isn't it?   :usd:

Thanks for replying Anik.

Moon - earth: hahahha, obviously not to scale!

Thank you for the additional picture, scavo.  I've looked through the CGR, but don't think they figure there.  Perhaps when Jindrich will have a minute to spare, he'll be able to pop in and help.  I'm clueless.
