I have an old world globe, I think all names are in old

Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old world globe, I think all names are ***** ***** french. It is labeled G. Thomas Circa 1890. How IWhere) can I get this appraised?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I don't know much more. I have had it a long time, originally bought at a small antique store in Jamestown, Ca. I don't have a pic to show you but may be able to get one later today. There is a pic on line at la-timonerie-antiquites.com/en/globe that looks very much like my globe.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It's in fairly good condition, still lights up and is quite legible but I don't recognize most of the names because I'm not familiar with french.
