Unfortunately, not just not a collectible product, A PVC printed globe does not last long, they are fragile especially with direct sunlight.
How do you spot a Fake globe in compare with true Unique Art Gemstone globe that will last life time:
1: Unique Art globe has a coin size twin lions trade mark logo at south pole area
2: you will not find any pearl ocean models nor countries in pearl shells with PVC printed globes cause those shinning pearls and shells are extremely hard to print, they use more deeper color inks to fake deeper color stones and especially like pink rosy color for Austria, and oh yes all their globes are exactly same in country shapes cause they are printed. Unique Art Gemstone Globes are never the same due to true hand cut and paste. Every single globe from Unique art brand is an Unique globe
3. Use a high beam flash light that you will reveal that except the color line, you will not see any stone to ocean or stone to stone gaps thanks to great pvc printing technology, a plastic ball can be sold over times in profits)
4: while Unique Art Brand only uses true zinc alloy stands the fake Gem globe seller uses plastic even though they call them metal steel (yes plastic stands that plated gold or copper color, they try to avoid silver color for a reason that is hard to hide, use something sharp, try the bottom of the compass holder and reveal the Magic)
Unique art since 1996, United States Corporation and True Gemstone globe maker since 1996!
This unique blue lapis gemstone globe is brand new and in perfect condition. It is painstakingly handcrafted by the most talented artists by, using more than 30 different semi-precious gemstones from all over the world. This globe have used large amount of blue jasper that pulverized, and mixed with an epoxy and poured to make the ocean part of the globe (it is a very complicated and expensive procedure, precise control of temperature is the most essential factor in the processing cycle). This is a huge amount of striking and dramatic hand-crafted stone work. This globe is built with the beautiful ornate, tripod-leg heavy gold brass stand into which the globe has been carefully mounted. At the bottom of the stand, a precise glass-topped integral brass compass is incorporated to complement the globe. Each country is inlaid from a different stone, and the stones are individually cut and ground to exacting interlocking shapes, polished and set into this exquisite piece of art with care and attention to adjacencies. The elements of the globe are created out of lapis lazuli, mother of pearl, amethyst, african jade, tiger's eye, jasper, turquoise, purple quartz, onyx, unakite, abalone, green marble and many other beautifully hued and richly veined stones. The latitude and longitude lines are very thin ribbons of polished brass, embedded through the globe. Each globe requires ten individual steps to compose and it takes more than 2000 hours of labor to complete.
