The Weber Costello USA Globe by Authentic Models

A number of globe manufacturers were active in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. C. F. Weber & Co was based in the Chicago area, a major center of globe publishing during this period.

Based on the union of two school supply houses, C. F. Weber & Co. and A. H. Andrews & Co., the Weber Costello Company was founded in Chicago in 1907 and rapidly became the dominant globe manufacturer in the United States.  The company has produced globes for such notable firms as Cram, Rand McNally, Nystrom, Hammond and Denoyer-Geppert (Warner 24).   After WWII Weber Costello Co. was sold.  As Arthur H. Robinson states, “Now all that remains of the Weber Costello products of old are erasers and chalk, sold through the Quartet Manufacturing Company.” 

***This globe is not current.  It is an 20th century replica globe.***

Attention to detail is key. Authentic Models (AM) replicates the complicated ’gravure’ printing process, resulting in the sharpest lines, words and symbols even on the smallest size globe. All AM globes are made using original charts, researched by AM for their historical accuracy and visual appeal.

Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mache core. Given the limited technology available at the time, a complicated production process and a multitude of specialists involved, it was logical that only the very rich could afford to own globes. This is illustrated by 17th C. Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science, sohistication, even worldiness.

Authentic Model globes offer history at your fingertips and highlight some of the world's most famous cartographers:  Mercator, Hondius, Kaerius and Vaugondy.
