SHOE BOX GLOBE, RED FLYING A SUPER EXTRA. For sale, this new repro shoe box globe with repro lenses. The body is cast from an original glass shoebox globe we happened to be lucky enough to have loaned to us. A high performance mold was used; all the details of the original globe were transferred in very fine detail.
We make these one at a time in low volume. To my knowledge there is no other source for reproduction shoe box bodies other than us.
The material we use is UV resistance transparent urethane plastic. Its a top of the line and very expensive urethane specifically formulated to simulate glass. After the initial curing is complete, each top is fired in a kiln for several hours to achieve maximum strength and durability. We then buff and shine the tops.
The tops light up amazingly well, hard to capture in pictures. An artifact of molding is that we need to trim the very bottom of the body where the urethane enters the mold, but its not in an area that's visible. The lenses are made with the same method original lenses were, screened and fired in a kiln not a decal!, made by Pogo's Garage out of Canada. Best effort was made to duplicate the original lenses in color and design. The lenses are marked with the following WWW-POGOSGARAGE-COM.
