J. Forest made a variety of globes, largely for school use, but also for home use. Their vast variety included odd novelty globes, such as terrestrial globes on geared turntable stands and cigarette lighters incorporating globes.
Forest globes were mostly in French, with some for export in English or Spanish.
This globe on turned wood base looks to be dated between 1908 and 1911.
You can see that in the African continent there is Belgian Congo, (established 1908),
Also Rhodesia in not yet split into North and South which happened in 1911.
Globe has some wear commensurate with age.
