Vintage 1961 Illuminated Globe from Phyllis Diller's Yacht - 1960s Antique Light-Up World!

One-of-a-kind relic previously owned by the great actress and stand-up comedian Phyllis Diller (she died in 2012), this 1961 illuminated globe was used on her yacht back in the 1960s, the person who bought her yacht (a millionaire businessman) ended up with it and that person cherished it until their passing 15-years-ago, I've had it ever since. The globe lights-up, and both the light and light-switch work perfectly. Solid-wood base with brass (or gold-colored metal) ring surrounding the entire sphere (not just the half-sphere like newer globes.) The maps on this globe are fascinating, containing extinct countries like Tanganyika, that only existed in Africa for 3-years from 1961 until 1964! Electric globes from that era were EXTREMELY expensive and rare, this one was also owned by a superstar famous person and is very good condition considering the age and that it was originally used in maritime conditions (on a boat.) The 2nd photo is brighter all around - to show how the base (made of wood) looks.
