20th century globes styles

Globe base designs followed the dominant art trends of the 20th century, but
 often lasted for a decade or two longer.  Strictly speaking, the fluid Art Nouveau movement
 ended around 1914 with the beginning of WWI, yet globe bases in this style
 lingered into the 1930's when the simplicity of the Bauhaus style was already under way.
