GEOGRAPHIA 8 inch terrestrial globe, circa 1947

This is a particularly fine example of the popular table globe from the British company Geographia. It can be dated to circa 1947 as Pakistan is shown (1947) but Israel is not (1948).

The globe is constructed from a pasteboard sphere with hand-applied paper gores. There is very little fading or marking and the rich colours are complemented perfectly by the maroon bakelite base and lacquered brass meridian - quite a rare combination.

The map and meridian have been carefully cleaned and the base has been polished. Overall the globe is in excellent vintage condition.

Diameter 8 inches (200mm); overall height 310mm
