Mad Men continues to be a great TV drama, and of course the show offers wonderful eye candy for the mid-century atomic lover in us all. I love the great variety of lamps that show up in every weekly episode. My latest discovery through watching is the world globe that appears in Don Draper's office.
I did not know that a version was made with wrought iron legs, but once I knew, I had to have one! (Yes, on one level Mad Men is popularizing the stuff we love and making people think their junk is super valuable. But the set designers are showing so much variety it's giving even seasoned mid-century atomic lovers exposure to stuff we may not have seen before.)
So, here's the globe I just got off of that auction site. I hope I'm going to like this one enough that I won't be tempted to buy any more.
Before I took the plunge, I searched on Etsy.com and turned up a couple good ones, but they were about $40 more than I'm paying for the one I picked up, so it was a relative bargain I guess. At least that's what I'm telling myself.
